Creating peace, hope, unity and building community are the themes of two books from Missouri heading to Washington, D.C., for the 15th annual Library of Congress Book Festival on Sept. 5. We've already reported on our gratitude that "Painting for Peace in Ferguson" was selected as the Missouri Center for the Book's 2015 choice to represent the state in the Pavilion of the States. We'll be going to D.C. along with "Watch Out for Flying Kids! HowTwo Circuses, Two Countries, and Nine Kids Confront Conflict and Build Community." That Missouri book will have representatives from Circus Harmony performing and host an author talk and Q&A with writer Cynthia Levinson in the Teen Pavilion at 10 a.m.
