<b>From the book cover:</b><br>
A shy, young upper-class Jewish girl aspires to be a poet in 19th century New York City, and Ralph Waldo Emerson becomes her mentor and friend. <br><br>
Then Emma’s life takes an unexpected twist. The massive immigration of European Jews fleeing persecution, and many others seeking refuge in the United States -- the suffering and despair -- touch her deeply. Emma gathers courage and cries out for their defense. <br><br>
She emerges as a warrior, fighting bigotry, and also as a woman feeling the hardships of the oppressed poor.
Video: Sydney Harbour Knowledge Cafe
On 25th October 2007 I ran a Knowledge Cafe in Sydney. It was hosted by Annalie Killian of AMP on the 25th Floor of their building overlooking Sydney Harbour.
The Cafe was on the theme "What will be the impact of Social Tools within Organizations?" which I co-facilitated with Helen Paige who is regional director of the Gurteen Knowledge Community in Adelaide. About 70 people attended. It was a grat evening.
You will find information on over 200 books on this website - books that relate to the themes of the site: knowledge, learning, creativity, innovation and personal development.
