Join us for an intimate evening with best selling author James Twyman as he celebrates 25 years as the Peace Troubadour.  James will inspire us with original music followed by a discussion about his new book, "Giovanni and the Camino of St. Francis."

He describes the book as a revelation. "I was walking the Camino through Italy seven years ago and this story kept coming into my mind," he said. "I imagined a woman named Anna who has lost everything, especially her faith. And yet she feels incomprehensibly drawn to walk the 110 miles journey to Assisi, following in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi. When she decides to follow the prompt she meets a young Italian man named Giovanni who not only helps her when she falls on the path, but ultimately helps her heal her soul. And there's something he didn't tell Anna - something so fantastic it changes everything!" 

James will be traveling around the world in 2019 sharing the message from the book as well as a new one-man musical based on the life of St. Francis. "I don't want to just talk about the book but to bring people into a direct experience of what it might have felt like to sit beside the little man from Assisi eight hundred years ago," he explained. "I wrote all the music and am really excited to share this. It's the first time I've done anything like it, but it feels totally natural."

The Passion of St. Francis Musical  Performance

Imagine having a time machine and using it to bring St. Francis of Assisi into this modern world, even for one hour. What would he share and what could you learn about his life and the world he lived in? Best of all, what lessons could you learn and can apply to your own life? In this one man musical, NY Times bestselling author and Billboard Chart musician James Twyman offers a unique and powerful glimpse into the life of the planet’s most popular saint, showing how you can use the power of love to transform the world today. The one-hour musical is filled with songs and prayers and accompanies Twyman’s latest book: “Giovanni and the Camino of St. Francis.” It demonstrates how we can all be “Instruments of Peace” in this troubled time.
