Launch of Prisoners in The Promised Land on Nov 21, 2007

I attended Marsha's book launch for "Prisoners in the Promised Land" in the cosy library of the Royal Canadian Military Academy. It was a well attended affair in spite of the wicked weather.

Marsha gave a touching introduction to the book, how it came about and why it was a personal triumph for her to see it in print. For many of us who did not know about the Ukranian Internment in Canada, it was an eye-opener. I could not wait to start reading it and actually did, on my way home on the subway.

I also got a chance to present a copy of the Third Eye, to the person who helped it come into existence. It was a memorable moment.
