River of Fire Book Tour

Sister Helen Prejean calls her third book, River of Fire, “the prequel to Dead Man Walking“. How did this young woman who grew up in a white, middle-class family in the Jim Crow South find her way to the housing projects of New Orleans, and from there to accompany a man on death row to his execution?

River of Fire is on sale now! Sister Helen will is making appearances across the country to talk, answer questions, and sign books. (Please note: some events require tickets, with the ticket price including a copy of the book.)
