Mark Ristau for "A Hero Dreams"

Ten Days Free from Violence. Is it possible? Join peace advocate and author, Mark Ristau, who will read from his award-winning novel A Hero Dreams and lead a discussion that will explore the power of stories to bring people together and inspire us with the idea that peace is possible. Book signing to follow.

In A Hero Dreams, Ristau explores, through the eyes of a 10-year-old boy, a world in which “honor” is the watchword, bullying is considered normal, and the age-old problem of violence is on the rise…yet hidden deep within this 10-year-old boy’s heart lies the possibility of peace… What lies in your heart?
