Susanne Rheault: My Wild and Precious Life: A Memoir of Africa

September 24, 2019, 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Redwood Library and Athenæum

Psychologist Susanne Rheault has walked with lions in the bush and dodged bombs in Dar es Salaam. Now, in her new book My Wild and Precious Life: A Memoir of Africa, she recounts with candor and humility the hard lessons learned during a life working to help impoverished communities in Africa. In this lecture, she will present photos and stories of her adventures in Africa working for the Clinton Foundation as well as the formation of Precious Project in rural Tanzania, where she transformed a small two-room orphanage in rural Tanzania into an NGO that boasts a home, an organic farm, and a primary school for 350 children. She will share the tough realities of living alongside families in poverty, the enriching experience of learning the culture and traditions from her neighbors while also highlighting the extraordinary warmth of the African people she has come to know…a story of people working together as they strive for a common goal, always persisting with hope.
