Jennifer Anne Cooper -- Book LaunchSaturday Mar 02 2013 2:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
This book is intended for anyone who has pondered the big questions of life. It is a unique collection of thoughts and photographs designed to provoke, stimulate, and inspire. Starting as a way to honour the year 2012, which some thought could be our last on earth, the meditations were created monthly and shared with a growing and enthusiastic audience. They have come together in this collection for the enjoyment of those who choose to lead an examined life.
Jennifer Anne Cooper, Q.C., LLB, is a Winnipeg lawyer recognized as one of the best lawyers in Canada by Best Lawyers, the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.

Profits from the sale of this book will go to the Malala Fund, a charity that supports the education of girls everywhere in the world.
