An Afternoon with Tracy Kidder, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award Winner!
Wednesday, February 25, 4:00 pm
Author Tracy Kidder is coming to speak to Teton County high school students on Wednesday, February 25, at 4 pm at Jackson Hole Community School. He will present at a community-wide event at the Center for the Arts later that evening. Kidder’s remarks will focus on his unforgettable New York Times bestseller, Strength in What Remains. He may also touch on Mountains Beyond Mountains, his biography of Paul Farmer, Partners In Health co-founder and global health activist. Partners In Health recently launched a program targeted at Ebola in Sierra Leone and Liberia. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa raises many points about structural poverty and broken public health systems throughout the world which are at the core of Kidder’s current concerns. His most recent book is entitled Good Prose. A limited number of Journeys high school students can attend this special event. Those who are interested should contact Drew Overholser as soon as possible. There are a number of complimentary copies of his latest book for those students who sign up early!
