Evening with the Author: Roberta Gately presents Footprints in the Dust

Footprints in the Dust book cover

Thursday, October 17 at 7:00 -- Our next Evening with the Author event features local author Roberta Gately, a nurse and humanitarian aid worker who has served in war zones from Africa to Afghanistan aiding refugees. There are more than 22 million refugees worldwide and another 65 million who have been forcibly displaced. Images filter into our consciousness via dramatic photographs, but these photos only offer a glimpse into their stories. Footprints in the Dust aims to reveal the truth about their experience.

As a young ER nurse in Boston, Roberta was stopped cold by stark images of big-bellied babies with empty haunting stares in the news. Roberta would soon learn the world into which millions of children around the globe were born was fraught with unspeakable horrors.

Footprints in the Dust reveals the humanity behind the headlines. The people we meet within this riveting book are neither all saints nor all sinners - and impossible to forget.
