A "New York Times" bestseller in hardcover, Pulitzer Prize winner Alice Walker's "We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For" was called "stunningly insightful" and "a book that will inspire hope" by "Publishers Weekly."
Drawing equally on Walker's spiritual grounding and her progressive political convictions, each chapter concludes with a recommended meditation to teach us patience, compassion, and forgiveness. "We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For" takes on some of the greatest challenges of our times and in it Walker encourages readers to take faith in the fact that, despite the daunting predicaments we find ourselves in, we are uniquely prepared to create positive change.
The hardcover edition of "We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For" included a national tour that saw standing-room-only crowds and standing ovations. Walker's clear vision and calm meditative voice--truly "a light in darkness"--has struck a deep chord among a large and devoted readership.
