Riffing on The Wizard of Oz but based in Chinese folklore, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a magical adventure with a lot of heart. It's the story of Minli, the daughter of poor farmers who barely scrape by. Inspired by her father's tales and a magic goldfish, Minli sets off to find the Old Man of the Moon and learn the secret of good fortune. Along the way she encounters royalty, dragons and fantastic stories, and through them she learns what good fortune really means. Based on the 2010 Newbery Honors book, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon is a beautifully-told fantasy that will keep kids entranced as they join Minli on her journey. Learn More

One of the most anticipated events at the National Race Amity Conference will be the world premiere of one of the most extraordinary real life stories of race amity in American history. Xernona and the Grand Dragon X is based on the true story of the friendship between civil rights leader Xernona Clayton, who worked alongside Martin Luther King, and the late Calvin Craig, Grand Dragon of the United Klan of Georgia. Their friendship resulted in Mr. Craig publicly renouncing the Klan in a press conference. Ms. Clayton, creator of the internationally televised Trumpet Awards for outstanding African Americans, will also be featured in an Amity Keynote panel during the conference in partnership with Mr. Craig’s daughter, Gail Craig Mayes, and in an Amity Sector Keynote.
