David LaMotte is the author of two illustrated children’s books, and is working on a non-fiction book for adults on citizen engagement.
Inspired by true events in May of 2007, White Flour tells a story of humor conquering hatred. This was the day that the Ku Klux Klan met the Coup Clutz Clowns. It is an instructive and inspiring tale of a Third Way, illustrating that there are more creative responses to hatred and bigotry than fight or flight, and doing so in Seussian rhyme.
With beautiful, humorous and nuanced illustrations by Jenn Hales that perfectly balance the story’s intrinsic humor with the seriousness of the issues it addresses, the book is generating quite a buzz.
The book is hardcover, and is printed on heavy, FSC-certified responsibly harvested paper with at least 10% post-consumer content, printed in Canada. eBook versions that support audio include David LaMotte reading the poem.

S.S. Bathtub is a playful romp through the rhyming, rolling seven seas. Taking its text from LaMotte’s international award-winning song by the same name, it is illustrated by Carrie Patterson with bright colors and charming characters.
The book is hardcover, and is printed on heavy, FSC-certified responsibly harvested paper with at least 10% post-consumer content, printed in Canada.

Worldchanging 101 is an encapsulation of workshops that David LaMotte has offered since the late 1990s. In it, he shares stories and insights from his work and travels in Guatemala, India, the West Bank and Bosnia, as well as stories from everyday activists in the U.S. He methodically challenges some of our commonly held, but seldom examined, ideas about how large scale social change happens, and what our roles in it may be.
Worldchanging 101 is as yet unfinished. Look for a release date in 2013.
