About this Event

Students across the country and around the world have read Linda Sue Park's book A Long Walk to Water. The book tells Salva's story as a former "Lost Boy of Sudan" who fled his village at age 11 during the Sudanese civil war. On his journey, he joined thousands of lost boys to find safety in refugee camps. He received the opportunity to come to the United States and eventually established Water for South Sudan to help drill wells in his home country.

Now, 16 years later, the work of Water for South Sudan (WFSS) has expanded to so much more than drilling wells. Our team also teaches rural villagers basic hygiene education, rehabilitates older wells and completed our first sanitation project providing Zogolona Primary School students with toilet facilities.

Join Salva Dut and WFSS Executive Director Lynn Malooly at the Dove Library for a meet-n-greet, book signing, and presentation. Copies of A Long Walk to Water will be available for purchase.
