Judith Toy to discuss finding forgiveness through Zen

Written by 

Judith Toy, ordained by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh as a core member of his order, will be at City Lights Bookstore at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 11 to read from her book, Murder as a Call to Love.

This is the true account of the young man who murdered the author’s sister-in-law and her two teenaged nephews. He hid in the garage in an affluent neighborhood and waited until they were asleep. In the night, he bludgeoned and stabbed them to death and fled.

The perpetrator was a 19-year-old boy from across the street, a family friend. Lost in grief, Toy finds the practice of Zen and later is able to forgive the killer.

“This book will appeal to those interested in Buddhism, particularly the traditions of mindfulness and forgiving,” said Eon Alden, the City Lights publicist.
