Visiting Author in March: Leza Lowitz

Next week author Leza Lowitz will be spending the day at ASIJ, conducting two keynote presentations to the middle school about the March 2011 tsunami and the making of her latest book; teaching a college composition class in the HS; and participating in the High School Book Club’s discussion of Up from the Sea.  The book is a powerful novel-in-verse account about how one teen boy survives the March 2011 tsunami that devastates his coastal Japanese village (Amazon).

Ms. Lowitz is not only an author, but also a yoga teacher, and owner of Sun and Moon Yoga Studio in Tokyo. For over two decades, she’s been bringing together the worlds of writing and spirituality, charting her quest in over seventeen books and in the New York Times online, Yoga Journal, Shambhala Sun, The Best Buddhist Writing 2011, The Huffington Post, The Japan Times, and The San Francisco Chronicle, among others.

If you are interested in participating in the High School Book Club’s discussion of Up from the Sea, come by the IdeaXchange Thursday, March 10th at 1:00pm. The High School Library has a few copies of the book available for check out.
