Walk the path of love with one of the warmest, most beloved spiritual leaders of our time, and learn how to put faith into action. This audiobook will lead listeners to discover the gifts they need in order to live the way of love: deep reservoirs of hope and resilience, simple wisdom, the discipline of nonviolence, and unshakable regard for human dignity.

What do we sacrifice in the pursuit of normalcy? Can we envision a world that sees impossible creatures? Written with the love and playfulness that defines Riva’s work, Golem Girl is an extraordinary story of tenacity and creativity that invites listeners to stretch toward a world where bodies flow between all possible forms of what it is to be human. This audio production includes a PDF of illustrations and photographs from the book, which are also uniquely described aurally in the audiobook.

In a new collection that is “a force of nature” (Amy Gerstler), renowned Native poet Heid E. Erdrich applies her rich inventive voice and fierce wit to the deforming effects of harassment and oppression. These poems are immediate, personal, political, cultural, even futuristic object lessons. Here, survivors shout back.
