A Human Rights anthology

We learned about this book via ArtsJournal. A group of important authors are celebrating the Declaration of Human Rights by contributing their work to it.

From the Guardian: Top authors around the world, from Joyce Carol Oates to Henning Mankell and David Mitchell, have come together to mark 60 years of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, penning short stories inspired by each of the declaration's 30 articles. Some of the writers taking part, including Dorfman and Paulo Coelho, have experienced human rights violations first hand: all have written their stories for free, with all royalties to go to Amnesty International... More.
