Join us for the book launch event for Distance and Desire, the new novel by Imants Kins

During our hour together we will explore how stories can be used to break down the cultural barriers that so often separate us. When the characters in a novel are rendered with depth and care, their responses to the world and each other reveal essential qualities of our deeper nature.

In Distance and Desire two people, one from New York, the other from China, encounter each other’s cultures through their growing intimacy. During this book launch event, you will meet author Imants Kins, learn about his new novel, and discuss how literature can bridge divides and illuminate spiritual truths.

I hope you will join us.
