Sunday Evening Lecture – John Heminway – “In Full Flight: A Story of Africa and Atonement”

July 15 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is the remarkable story of a women’s search for a new life in Africa following World War II. Dr. Anne Spoerry earned the name of “Mother Doctor” from the people of Kenya. For more than 20 years she flew all over Africa saving countless lives. Few knew what earlier evil acts had driven her from post-war Europe to Africa. In his new book, Heminway asks whether it is possible to rewrite the past by doing good deeds in the present.

John Heminway is the author of six books, an award winning journalist and filmmaker. He has won numerous awards for his creative work. This will be a fascinating talk by someone who spent years in Africa and was a devoted friend of his subject.

This event is free and open to the public.
