This book is inspiring. DWK has a mission to create a new community and overcome cultural and historic rifts through art as a shared experience, and as a student of Arts Administration, I am 100% with her. If you are involved in the arts in any way, read this book! Not only is it inspiring, but her story is fascinating & easy/fun to read.
