Gather at the Table called “brave and compelling” in new YES! Magazine reviewPosted August 23rd, 2013 by Thomas Norman DeWolf
As we prepare for the October 15 release of the paperback edition of Gather at the Table, we were thrilled to learn that our book was to be reviewed in the Fall edition of YES! Magazine. Not only does the reviewer, Lisa Gale Garrigues, call GATT “brave and compelling, she writes:
Our connection with YES! began a few months ago. They contacted me, in my capacity as Community Coordinator for Coming to the Table, about using a photo taken by Jane Feldman at our March 2012 National Gathering in Richmond, Virginia for a story entitled “Slave and Slaveholder Descendants Break Free of History’s Trauma — Together.” This led to YES! featuring Jane’s work in their Fall issue (available in September) in “The Spiritual Side of Photographing Mandela, Tutu, and the Dalai Lama,” and reviewing Gather at the Table.
We encourage you to not only pick up the Fall issue, but to subscribe to YES! It’s a positive, solution-focused magazine addressing the big challenges of our times.
Please remember you can order Gather at the Table directly from our publisher, Beacon Press, and you will receive a 20% discount, free shipping, AND Beacon will donate 10% from each order to Coming to the Table, the organization at the heart of our journey and book.
