By Marcelle Mansour
“Conversations in Peace” book was launched by Her Excellency Dame Marie Bashir - the former Governor of New South Wales - on Tuesday the 11th of August at Gleebooks, Glebe. It is the first volume of the speeches which were delivered by Sydney Peace Prize recipients. The first 14 recipients of the Sydney Peace Prize (1998-2011) were selected from around the world. The book was edited by both authors Dr Lynda-Ann Blanchard & Dr Hannah Middleton.  A film of ‘Conversations in Peace’ was produced and screened under the auspices of philanthropist Steve Killelea and music was played by renowned Kurdish Artist Veli Toprak.

This volume not only pays homage to the wonderful recipients of the Sydney Peace Prize, but also serves to honour Emeritus Professor Stuart Rees AM, founder of the Sydney Peace Foundation and the Sydney Peace Prize.
