Here's the scoop:
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was proclaimed 60 years ago by the United Nations General Assembly. We Are All Born Free is a version for young people, illustrated by stars from the world of children's books, which has been translated into more than 30 languages and is due to be made into a short film. The artwork is on display at Waterstone's Piccadilly until October 31.
The subject of the Declaration of Human Rights came up because we were reading the marker in John Humphrey Lane, which is not too far from our house here in Hampstead, Quebec. Humphrey, who was born in Hampton, New Brunswick, was the author of the Declaration. You can learn more about him here.
