RACHEL CORRIE SPEAKS: A dramatic reading of her journals by her mother and father and numerous young women peace activists. Rachel Corrie is the young American college student and activist killed by a bulldozer in 2003 as she tried to block the Israeli demolition of a Palestinian physician's house in Gaza. She was 23 years old. "Let Me Stand Alone, The Journals of Rachel Corrie" intimately reveals her life, from her childhood observations at age 8 living in Olympia, WA, through her growth into teen concerns, falling in and out of love, revealing her deepening reflections and political engagements with startling insight, passion, compassion and humor. This beautiful book acquaints the reader with a very gifted writer and her unique clarity of consciousness.

Benefit: The Rachel Corrie Foundation. Supported by KPFA Radio, Middle East Children's Alliance, Global Exchange, War Resisters League, American Friends Service Committee, Code Pink, Jewish Voice for Peace, Friends of Sabeel-North America (FOSNA), Friends of Sabeel-Bay Area, International Solidarity Movement, Fourteen Friends of Palestine, Break the Silence Mural Project, Friends of Deir Ibzi'a, Resource Center for Non-Violence/Santa Cruz, Ashkenaz Cultural Center, LaPena Cultural Center, Cody's Books, Open Exchange, Bay Area independent bookstores.
