Dreams of Kathmandu – Oloris Poets for Nepal

Dreams-of-KathmanduOn April 25th, 2015, Nepal experienced it’s worst natural disaster since 1934, when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake shook the country. The initial earthquake killed over 8,800 people, and injured 23,000 more. In addition, it destroyed ancient buildings, temples, schools, and, of course, many homes. Aftershocks continued to ravage the country, culminating in another lethal event on on May 12th, adding to the destruction.

In the face of such disasters, it’s hard to know what to do to help. When confronted by natural disaster, it’s easy for humans to feel helpless. We can’t prevent the disaster, but we can step up to help make things as right as they can be afterwards. That’s the purpose of this poetry collection.

Featuring the work of Janet Nelson-Alvarez, Lara Sookoo, John Evans, Robyn Stone-Kraft, Deborah Sabo, and Bernadette Barnes, sales of this collection will be donated to Room to Read’s Nepal Education Fund. You also have the option to make an extra donation to Room to Read at checkout.
