March 18, 2011 - PRLog -- RIVER JORDAN is the story of the young Arab American boy Rami who, dealing with the tragic murder of his father, learns the deeper secrets of death and resurrection through the guidance of a blind artist. This cross-cultural graphic novel reveals one of the most telling dichotomies of our time: connecting with the rich and meaningful roots of a traditional heritage, while simultaneously journeying forward into a modern age of global cultural integration. More so, RIVER JORDAN tells the story of what it is to be human; to suffer loss and find forgiveness.

Two families lose their fathers through direct and indirect consequences. Murder, suicide, and betrayal tears these families apart and war is waged in the heart and home. Nabil, a lifelong friend of Rami’s father, is struck with blindness at the very moment his dear friend is murdered. Through Nabil a covenant transcending death parts the veil between the spiritual and physical worlds, connecting a beloved father and his youngest son. Through art Nabil teaches Rami the path of truth and forgiveness.

Don't miss the launch of this inspirational graphic novel this weekend at the 2nd annual Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo (C2E2). You can find RIVER JORDAN at booth 623. Author signings and media welcome.
