When Kevin Tuerff and his partner boarded their flight from France to New York City on September 11, 2001, they had no idea that a few hours later the world — and their lives — would change forever. After U.S. airspace closed following the terrorist attacks, Kevin, who had been experiencing doubts about organized religion, found himself in the small town of Gander, Newfoundland, with thousands of other refugees or “come from aways.”

Channel of Peace is a beautiful account of how the people of Gander rallied with boundless acts of generosity and compassion for the “plane people,” renewing Kevin’s spirituality and inspiring him to organize an annual and growing “giving back” day. His story, along with others, has reached thousands of people when it was incorporated into the Broadway musical Come From Away.

In Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11, you will find an unforgettable, uplifting tale of goodwill, the strength of the human spirit, and hope.

KEVIN TUERFF is a social entrepreneur with twenty-five years of experience in marketing communications. He has founded a college radio station, a national recycling awareness day, an international kindness initiative, and a certified B Corporation environmental marketing company. He is passionate about finding solutions for global climate change and refugees, and has been named an Ambassador for the Charter of Compassion. A resident of Austin, Texas, for over thirty years, Tuerff now lives in New York City. Follow him on Twitter @channelof_peace and Instagram @channel_of_peace_book.

Praise for Kevin Tuerff and Channel of Peace:

“Kevin Tuerff's first-hand account takes us inside a 9/11 story that's largely unknown and which helps restore our faith that human beings need not always be divided by our differences.” — Wade Goodwyn, NPR

“Kevin Tuerff tells a delightful and heartwarming story that takes us from one of the darkest days seen by America and the world to a bright, safe, love-filled place that truly exists right here on earth. It is a story filled with hope for a better tomorrow.” — Jeanette Gutierrez, 9/11 Survivor

“The message of this book is very important, because our world is divided by increasing hatred and intolerance. Channel of Peace: Stranded in Gander on 9/11 is a beautiful story about how a seed of love can be planted within someone and years later grow into a beautiful, flowering tree.” — Mayor Claude Elliott, Town of Gander, Newfoundland
