Education of a Stranger is a word traveler, a storied and poetic lexicon. It moves words like education, hunger, books, women and children into spaces near and far from Minnesota to Tanzania to North Carolina, transforming perceptions and assumptions. For those crossing thresholds, these words have lessons for the heart and soul whether we are entering new places or welcoming others into ours, seeking together the Beloved Community.
