"The Lightmaker's Manifesto' is, at least for me, such a soul-shifting, soul-rattling, squirm-inducing, light-manifesting literary beacon of sorts."
"Karen Walrond's book is a light that shines your way to joy and possibility."
"Regardless of where you are in your journey to activism, there's something in this book for you. There are inspiring stories, motivational examples, clear action and next steps and a full workbook for you to design your own personal journey."
The book officially launches on November 2nd, and pre-orders remain so important, not just for me, but formy sweet, sweet publisher as well. So if you haven't already,please order yourself and/or your friends a copy of The Lightmaker's Manifesto. I'd be so, so grateful.
