Event description

Description

Welcome to Here-2-There 4.0 - What is Your Adventure is a fourth installment of a leadership series hosted by Sam Thiara and supported by Mike Schauch. The evening will focus on Sam's book launch and also be an engaging evening with dialogue, performers and opportunities for you to share your adventure with a dynamic audience. In addition, the evening is about helping people realize their adventure and what it means to be an author...and how there might be an author in you.

About the book: 'Lost and Found: Seeking the Past and Finding Myself' is a moving memoir by speaker, educator, and entrepreneur Sam Thiara and it documents his seemingly impossible quest to find his grandfather’s village—armed with little more than a faded photograph.

Sam vividly recounts his adventure through India’s crowded roads—a journey filled with mishaps and surprising encounters, and a growing sense of purpose. Drinking in the beauty of the Taj Mahal and the Golden Temple, he finds himself connecting more deeply with his Sikh faith, while confronting the ugliness of the country’s poverty and injustice. Along the way, Sam also wrestles with his sense of self. A British-born Indian, living in Canada, whose parents came from Fiji, he questions: Am I Indian? Am I Canadian? Am I Sikh? Who am I?

As he begins to piece together the puzzle of his history, Sam realizes he is piecing himself together, too. Touching and inspiring, Lost and Found is a book for anyone who has felt adrift in the world, confirming that what was once lost can be found.
