John Bul Dau, also known as Dhieu-Deng Leek, has experienced challenges in his life that most people could never imagine.   Born in war-torn Sudan, Dau is one of 27,000 “Lost Boys of Sudan”, driven from their villages when the northern Arab government attacked the ethnic minority population of South Sudan in 1987.  For the next five years, John Dau led groups of displaced boys across Sudan for hundreds of miles while facing starvation, disease and violence.  John moved to the US in 2011, became a US Citizen in 2006, and has devoted his life to various foundations that he started, with the primary goal of bringing both peace and health care to the people of Southern Sudan.  His memoir God Grew Tired of Us was made into an award winning documentary film in 2006. 

Tickets are $35 at Hearthside Books and include lunch. 

Doors Open 11:15, Lunch is at 11:30, and no seating offered after 11:50am.  The program usually concludes at about 1:20 and the speaker is then available for autographs.
