Into the Light

This book launching is the closing event in the day-long celebration of the seventeenth anniversary of the Cathedral Center for Prayer and Pilgrimage. Learn more »

Join Susan Beilby Magee, author of the newly released title, INTO THE LIGHT: The Healing Art of Kalman Aron, as she shares the life-lessons of a gifted artist who emerged from the ashes of the Holocaust to explore the nature of humankind and the mystery of life—all on canvas. A powerful, visual record unfolds of Aron’s remarkable journey from the darkness into the light. Magee shows the evolution of his art over five decades and reveals his answers to universal questions: What happens to the rage, sorrow and despair? Does one chose to remember, forgive, and heal? Healing himself through his art, Aron’s example offers hope to all who have suffered.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the event, or may be ordered from Politics and Prose.
