The Global Initiatives, Office of Undergraduate Education, and the School of Arts and Sciences International Programs are pleased to announce the upcoming lecture and book signing featuring human rights activist Ishmael Beah, author of the book "A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier."

In "A Long Way Gone", Beah, now twenty-six years old, tells a riveting story. At the age of twelve, he fled attacking rebels and wandered a land rendered unrecognizable by violence. By thirteen, he'd been picked up by the government army, and Beah, at heart a gentle boy, found that he was capable of truly terrible acts. Eventually released by the army and sent to a UNICEF rehabilitation center, he struggled to regain his humanity and to re-enter the world of civilians, who viewed him with fear and suspicion. This is, at last, a story of redemption and hope.

A book signing will follow the talk.
