I was blessed to be able to attend the Book Expo America held in Los Angelas in May 2008 where the winners in all the categories were invited to be present for book signing opportunities. It was a whirl wind event   during which the message of  Peace was able to be conveyed to a wide international audience. It was a pleasure to meet this quietly passionate woman Marilyn McGuire and to thank her for honouring the wisdoms of the Grandmothers of Waitaha.
