Lee Mulder, a Glen Ellyn author, will be at the Library on Thursday, March 22 at 7 pm to talk about his remarkable journey to Uganda, East Africa. Through his travels to Uganda during the past eight years and from interviews with hundreds of people in the country, including Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni, Mulder’s story is a personal journey colored with a vibrant tableau of daily life in Uganda. He learned about the major issues this emerging democracy has faced which often conflicted with international aid agencies and other governments. In this thought-provoking presentation of the people and the place that Winston Churchill once called “The Pearl of Africa,” Mulder tells unforgettable stories of struggle and perseverance. He has written an inspiring book, They Call Me Mzee: One Man’s Safari Into Brightest Africa about his story of discovery in this faraway land. The book will be for sale and signing at the program. It is a free event and open to the public. Call GEPL or visit this link to register to attend.
