Book release celebration

A Peace of my Mind

Location: In Person

550 Vandalia Street #170
Saint Paul, MN, 55114

Join A Peace of My Mind’s John Noltner as we celebrate the release of our new book, Lessons on the Road to Peace.

In the fall of 2020, award-winning Minnesota-based photographer John Noltner and his wife Karen sold their home in Minnesota and hit the road to live small, listen deeply and learn about who we are as a country.

Lessons on the Road to Peace is the journal of an honest and clear-eyed journey through our country, guided by hope. 900 days, 93,000 miles, hundreds of stories, and one goal…in a divided world, to rediscover what connects us.

Robert Shetterly of Americans Who Tell the Truth says, “John Noltner, with his beautiful photographs and vivid stories is our contemporary Alexis de Tocqueville, inquiring whether America’s people prefer repair to injury, compassion to vengeance, real democracy to sectarian strife. John’s witness is essential to knowing and healing ourselves.”

Noltner traveled to our southern border to explore immigration, to Skid Row to talk about housing insecurity, to Mississippi to learn about moving Confederate monuments. The book is a journey to the heart of our nation’s greatest pain points, but seeks out the voices of those who are looking for creative solutions to our greatest challenges.

MSNBC Anchor Yasmin Vossoughian says, “John Noltner takes us on a journey to rediscover America. The beauty, the pain, the sadness and the joy. His journey allows you to see what is possible and what is.”

Pearce Godwin, Founder of the #ListenFirst Coalition of 500+ organizations pursuing peace across divides says, “John Noltner vividly captures the gritty beauty, pain, courage, and hope on the front lines of the American experiment.”

Lessons on the Road to Peace is Noltner’s fourth book in a series for his ongoing project, A Peace of My Mind.

The book’s companion exhibit will be on display as well.

There will be light snacks beverages on hand.

Tickets are free, required, and will sell out quickly, so register soon and we will look forward to seeing you.
