On February 26, 2015, Tracy Kidder gave a lecture at the Center for the Arts, Jackson, WY.
Kidder’s remarks focused on his unforgettable New York Times bestseller, Strength in What Remains. He also touched 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.
