Douglas Carlton Abrams' latest work, The Book of Joy, presents two great spiritual masters sharing their own hard-won wisdom about living with joy even in the face of adversity. Abrams recalls, “I have had the privilege of working with Archbishop Tutu (affectionately known as “Arch”) for over a decade on his books for adults and children. He has become my mentor, my friend, and my rabbi. At the Archbishop’s 80th birthday in Cape Town, the chairman of the Dalai Lama Foundation suggested that Arch and His Holiness should do a book together. We asked Arch if he wanted to do a book with His Holiness and he replied “I’d do anything with that man.” The result is The Book of Joy, which was selected as the “book of the fair” at the 2015 London Book Fair, and it’s being published in more than 20 countries. A documentary film on Joy and the week in Dharamsala is also in development.
