South African writer, political activist

“Your books were beacons for freedom seekers in South Africa and everywhere. Literature takes the reader along to explore the dimensions and dilemmas of freedom. What challenges does freedom face today in both new and aging democracies?”

Beads were gift from South African activist I met at a World Council of Churches conference; green glass shards made from Mt. St. Helen’s ash; Depression glass and china; fish cast in Hebron.
