Dearest Ones,
This is a warm invitation to come celebrate the release of this book of Buddhist women’s teaching stories. There will be several wonderful teachers and many teachers of color featured in the program and present to sign books. We are thrilled that PJ Hirabayashi from San Jose Taiko will be opening the evening with drumming. Volunteers are needed to help on-site and/or to bring finger food for the celebration. If interested contact volunteer coordinator Allison Warren – adwarren247@gmail.com

See you there,
