The Year the World Stood Still by Susan M. Brescia
Celebrating the Human Spirit Finding Hope...Inspiration...and Creativity in COVID-19 Artist Susan Brescia chronicles the story of our times, one that resonates with kindness, hope, inspiration, and resilience of the human spirit. An essential worker, schoolteacher, healthcare hero, first responder, volunteer, scientist...a mother, son, grandmother, neighbor…The Year the World Stood Still encompasses several charcoal drawings and real-life stories of people from Sue’s community within her home state of Rhode Island. But her drawings capture the faces of us all, as a country and a world. The sketches/drawings that grace the pages of this 100-page hardcover coffee table book are as compelling and moving as their stories.
