(Cody Miller | News3) – The book chronicling the Las Vegas Community Healing Garden, ‘Healing Las Vegas’, was released earlier this month and is on sale now with proceeds benefiting the garden.
The compilation of photos, memories, poems, inscriptions and tributes to survivors and victims of the One October mass shooting presents a thoughtful gift for this holiday season.
‘Healing Las Vegas’ is a community effort, according to Mauricia Baca, executive director of Get Outdoors Nevada, a nonprofit that partners with the City of Las Vegas to take care of the garden.
“The book is filled with photos chronicling the first year of the Garden and is punctuated with quotes and thoughts from the families of victims collected by the UNLV oral history department, survivors and first responders and includes tributes from both Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak and city of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman,” said Baca. “Most importantly, it is an important account of a very dark time in Las Vegas history, but with a hopeful outlook of how the community came together to honor those affected while healing themselves.”
The book is available for about $20 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble with ten percent of proceeds going to support the garden.
Also, Get Outdoors Nevada is also selling copies, giving 100 percent of the proceeds to the garden.
