The official paperback release of my newest novel Tribes of Eden is coming down the track like a freight train. April 2, 2012 is the big day. I have happily devoted nearly eight years to the making of this book. It is inspired by and dedicated to the REAL tribes of eden — the thousands and thousands of people around the globe who make up The Eden Alternative and broader culture change community. This is your book.
Accordingly, Jude and I have dedicated 100 percent of the proceeds from sales of the Tribes of Eden to The Eden Alternative. Now I get to celebrate the book’s entry into the world on Wednesday, April 4 at 3 p.m. EST with a live video broadcast of the Tribes of Eden Virtual Book Launch Party at www.TribesofEden.com.
Be there or be Square.
We are making the book launch into a public event because events and celebrations support and sustain communities. We are all in this together.
This is our story.
I’ve found storytelling to be one of the most powerful tools in changing the culture of long term care. It has long been my goal to tap into that power to change the broader culture of aging in our society. We think that this novel has a shot at reaching and influencing the wider world. It is stories that change the world and we invite all of you to join us in celebrating the Tribes of Eden, its stories and characters.
Let’s ride!Continue Reading
