Fargo Public Library is pleased to welcome Fargo native Janella Nelson for a special presentation to share her experiences living and working in South Sudan, a country which has experienced 38 years of civil war. Ms. Nelson’s program “South Sudan: the Newest Country in the World” will touch on South Sudan’s history and culture along with sharing photos of this new country to help people better understand the country and its people. All ages are welcome to this engaging program at the downtown Main Library on Sunday, Dec. 16 starting at 2 p.m. in the community room. For more information, contact Melisa at 476-4076.
Ms. Nelson, an education specialist with 11 years of experience in development and humanitarian assistance focused on education programs, has spent half of her career living and working in conflict-afflicted countries in Africa. She is currently based out of Washington, D.C. and complements her consultancies by speaking at U.S. high schools to educate students about Africa.
Fargo Public Library programs are free and open to the public. Children under age 10 must be accompanied by an adult.
