The Stephen Lewis Foundation’s recently-published book will be launched in our community on Monday, October 16 from 4:30 to 6:00 at the Courtenay Public Library, 300 6th Street.

This free event will be an opportunity to hear from three grandmothers from Africa: Eunice Mangwane, Waziko Margret and Mariam Mulindwa, as well as the National Director of Phoebe Education Fund for Orphans & Vulnerable Children, and the book’s photographer, Alexis MacDonald. They will all be on hand to answer questions and to sign books.

Books will be supplied by Laughing Oyster Bookshop, and all royalties will benefit the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign of the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
