About the Author
John Derian is an artist and designer who transforms printed images from the past, and in doing so transports the viewer to another world. He established John Derian Company Inc. in 1989, and his decoupage plates, platters, paperweights, coasters, and bowls are still entirely handmade in his studio in New York City, where he employs a small staff of artisans to assist with production. His designs are sold at upscale home stores, in catalogs, and at gift shops worldwide, and he has designed exclusive collections for Cisco Brothers, Astier de Villatte, Target, and more. His retail shops, studio, and homes have been featured in Vogue, T: The New York Times Style Magazine, The World of Interiors, Elle Decor, and Vanity Fair, among others.
This tale will grab you, get under your fingernails and not let go so vivid are these 3 friends on a harrowing journey to save themselves. Ripped from the headlines, and extraordinary in its depiction of KIDS running from their country’s violence, depredation and hopelessness, the sometimes unspeakable events are also tempered with the hope and humanity of kind people along the way. Traveling from Honduras to the promised land of the US’s freedom and justice system, your eyes will be opened and your heart will plead for our nation to SEE these children and treat them with compassion.
