Pit Stop in the Paris of Africa author Julie Dargis will take you on a trip around the world through selected excerpts of stories and verse from her book. In addition, she will share reflections on her humanitarian aid work with African and Eastern European populations affected by war and natural disasters, and include how she dealt with adversity in her day-to-day life in some of the most difficult and dangerous countries in the world. She will close with a brief discussion on how she came to write about and publish her experiences, including ideas on how others can recount stories of their own.
