Even More on Deborah Ellis

The Pelham Public Library is thrilled to announce that Deborah Ellis, author of "Three Wishes: Palestinian and Israeli Children Speak," will be appearing at the Fonthill Branch on Tuesday, May 30 at 7:00. She will be addressing the controversy over her book. All ages are welcome. Adults: $5.00. Students/seniors: $3.00. (905) 892-6443. Visit The Pelham Public Library Web Site for directions to the Fonthill Branch.

In a statement, Three Wishes author Deborah Ellis said, “I have done many school talks around my books about children in war. Kids can handle the truth about what is being done to other children. It’s adults who get squeamish. They say, ’We must protect our children from such things,’ when really they are protecting themselves from having to answer the question: ’What are you doing to make the world better?’”
