Spencer Reece in conversation with RHINO's Ralph Hamilton

Our Little Roses Home for Girls in San Pedro Sula, Honduras has rescued some 60 orphaned or abandoned girls in a city once considered the "murder capital of the world." Poverty and violence-especially in the past 25 years, attributed to deported Los Angeles-based gangs-has affected the lives of all in the poorest Spanish-speaking country of the hemisphere.

Counting Time Like People Count Stars: Poems by the Girls of Our Little Roses, San Pedro Sula, Honduras
is an anthology of poetry from an amazing group of these young girls that also tells the story of Our Little Roses Home. Tonight Spencer Reece, one of the book's editors, will show a segment of a documentary about Our Little Roses and discuss the book with Ralph Hamilton, editor of the RHINO poetry journal. 

Spencer Reese is the author of The Clerk's Tale and The 
Road to Emmaus. He is the national secretary for the Spanish Episcopal Church, Iglesia Española Reformada Episcopal, and lives in Madrid, Spain.
