Book signing and refreshments

Kidder’s remarks will focus on his unforgettable New York Times bestseller, Strength in What Remains. He may also touch on Mountains Beyond Mountains, his biography of Paul Farmer, Partners In Health co-founder and global health activist. Partners In Health recently launched a program targeted at Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa raises many points about structural poverty and broken public health systems throughout the world which are at the core of Kidder’s current concerns. His most recent book is entitled Good Prose.
