Worldwide Folks Artwork Market Guide Signing Dec. 4

IFAM News:

SANTA FE – International Market (IFAM) will have a document signing on December 4 for a new book published by the organization – IN THE BUDDHA’S LIGHT by Joanna Hurley featuring pictures of award-winning artist, Jack Parsons and the introduction of a Buddhist Teacher, Zen priest and sociologist, Roshi Joan Halifax, Ph.D.

“We are pleased to announce the publication of the Buddha’s personality, and to give the public the opportunity to meet the author and to sign,” said IFAM chief executive Stuart Ashman. “This book is truly artistic, providing immersion information in the temples of Luang Prabang in Laos. We also invite all who come to our holiday market to attend the event.”

A thrilling reminder takes readers across the small town of Luang Prabang in Southeast Asia — a World Heritage site with more than 35 Buddhist temples that attract half a million visitors a year. In addition to the exciting story, the book contains 75 beautiful paintings of temples, monasteries, and the city.

“The year the tour was unprecedented, IN THE LIGHT OF BUDDHISM gives readers the opportunity to rediscover the world,” Ashman said. “We know you’ll miss out on this lovely journey, as well as beautiful photography.”

The event is 46 pm on Friday, December 4 at the IFAM Center on sale at 620 Cerrillos Road in Santa Fe as part of the IFAM Vacation Market.
