“희망을 대유행시킨 화제의 시”
전 세계를 위기와 불안으로 몰아넣은 코로나 팬데믹 속에서
위로와 치유를 전한 시 한 편이 아름다운 그림책으로 찾아오다!

코로나 바이러스가 세계적으로 대유행하면서 격리와 봉쇄로 모두가 사회적 거리두기를 해야 했던 2020년 3월, SNS에 한 편의 시가 게재된다. 바로 키티 오메라의 「그리고 사람들은 집에 머물렀습니다(And the People Stayed Home)」로, 코로나 바이러스가 가져온 고립을 반성과 전환의 계기로 삼아야 한다는 메시지를 담고 있다. 이 시는 놀랍게도 희망의 불씨가 되어 전 세계로 빠르게 퍼져 나갔다. 디팩 초프라, 벨라 하디드, 린제이 로한 등 인플루언서들을 통해 SNS에 널리 공유되었을 뿐만 아니라 주요 언론에서도 보도되었고, 단숨에 화제의 중심에 섰다.
시는 사람들에게 감동과 영감을 주어 다양한 예술의 형태로도 확산되었다. 아카데미시상식 주제가상을 받은 존 코릴리아노가 시를 음악으로 작곡하고 미국의 국민 성악가로 잘 알려진 르네 플레밍이 노래를 불렀으며, 텍사스 발레단이 시를 무용으로 재해석하기도 했다. 더불어 수많은 나라의 다양한 언어로 번역되어 낭송되었으며, 단편영화로 만들어지기도 했다.
그리고 마침내 키티 오메라의 시는 아름답고 섬세한 그림을 만나 『그리고 사람들은 집에 머물렀습니다』라는 그림책으로 우리를 찾아왔다. 그림책은 출간 즉시 미국 아마존에서 커다란 관심과 인기를 얻었고, 영화배우 케이트 윈슬렛이 내레이션한 애니메이션 북으로도 제작되었다.

And the People Stayed Home is a beautifully produced picture book featuring Kitty O'Meara's popular, globally viral prose poem about the coronavirus pandemic, which has a hopeful and timeless message.

Kitty O'Meara, author of And the People Stayed Home, has been called the "poet laureate of the pandemic." This illustrated children's book (ages 4-8) will also appeal to readers of all ages.

O'Meara's thoughtful poem about the pandemic, quarantine, and the future suggests there is meaning to be found in our shared experience of the coronavirus and conveys an optimistic message about the possibility of profound healing for people and the planet. Her words encourage us to look within, listen deeply, and connect with ourselves and the earth in order to heal.

O'Meara, a former teacher and chaplain and a spiritual director, clearly captures important aspects of the pandemic experience. Her words, written in March 2020 and shared on Facebook, immediately resonated nationally and internationally and were widely circulated on social media, covered in mainstream news media, and inspired an outpouring of creativity from musicians, dancers, artists, filmmakers, and more. The many highlights include an original composition by John Corigliano that was premiered by Ren e Fleming.
