Livestream series host Jason Prah leads his virtual audience behind the curtain of Ideologies & The Promise. His guests this month will be co-writer and executive producer, Maria S. Mejia, and psychologist Daniela E Schreier, PsyD ABPP. The two good friends will discuss religion, politics, family and growing up in urban Mexico City in the 1960s to share how Ms. Mejia's ideologies were shaped. Her story opened a world of questions and she will answer any you may have for her on this night. The original short story she wrote will be shared via email to to anyone who Pre-Orders before 5pm ET. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.

An examination of theology and ideologies between two Hispanic immigrant women, one Cuban and one Mexican; and a philosophical journey between two cousins reeling from the loss of a family member. Both parts converge with a poignant, family-affirming climax. Adapted from an essay and a short story written by a son and his mother, respectively.
