Heal of the Hand Book Signing and Presentation

Heal of the Hand book signing, presentation and fundraiser/awareness for Haiti.  Five percent of the book sales will go to Partners in Health to help Haiti.

This is a children's book about the earthquake in Haiti and the power of healing through story telling.   -->

"On January 12, 2010 the 7.0 magnitude earthquake which struck Haiti completely devastating Port-au-Prince and the surrounding villages left 316,000 people dead.  Of those who survived at least 250,000 were seriously wounded.   Thousands of children were orphaned.  How does a country, a people, an individual, a child, come to grips with such incomprehensible loss and find a path to journey forward?

One way the mind begins to grasp such tragedy and begins to heal is through the power of story.  One’s story is repeated over and over again until it journeys from the conscious memory to the subconscious layers of the mind to the depth of the soul, finding rest and the silence needed to heal.  Here in the soul, to heal is not to forget, but to hold the memory safe and sacred.

Heal of the Hand is a story about the healing power of storytelling in the land and the people of Haiti.”  Author Kiki Latimer.
