Life's changes. They happen every day. Some large, some small. A few are very personal. Others impact the world. Dedicated to the People of Darfur: ""Writings on Fear, Risk, and Hope"" includes original and inspiring essays that celebrate the glories gained from taking risks, breaking down barriers, and overcoming any obstacles. Nobel and Pulitzer Prize winners, a gallery of O.Henry award recipients, and many best-selling authors come together to share personal and compelling challenges and experiences. It includes topics ranging from contemplations on past drug use to reflections on gun control, social justice, passion and its sacrifices, and adventures such as skydiving, mountain climbing, and golfing, the topics vary greatly. This kaleidoscopic anthology is a commentary on the lives of prominent literary artists and ordinary citizens who have made simple, yet powerful choices that provoked change in one's self and for humanity - much the same way that Luke and Jennifer Reynolds do by building this invaluable collection for readers and the world of human rights. Not too long ago, as struggling graduate students, Luke and Jennifer Reynolds conceived this uniquely themed volume as a way to raise funds to support ending the genocide in Darfur. Some people carry signs, others make speeches, many take action. What is most special about this book is that it extends beyond words and ideas, into a tangible effort to effect change. To this end, all royalties from the sales of ""Dedicated to the People of Darfur: Writings on Fear, Risk, and Hope"" will benefit The Save Darfur Coalition, an organization that seeks to end the genocide in Darfur, Sudan. The contributors in ""Writings on Fear, Risk, and Hope"" include: Phillip Lopate; Ann Hood; James McPherson; Frank McCourt; George Saunders; Jane Smiley; Kim Edwards; and many, many others.
