Overview

Author and Professor Eucabeth Odhiambo presents her debut middle grade novel "Auma's Long Run." Her novel is inspired by her memories growing up in a Luo village in Kenya and her own work experiences with children and educators affected by HIV/AIDS in Africa. The book follows Auma, an exceptional runner who wins a track scholarship and dreams of becoming a doctor. But when disease strikes her own family, Auma must make a difficult choice: to leave her family to pursue her dreams or stay and support her family and friends in the community. Book signing to follow.  A "moving testament to the power of determination to overcome overwhelming odds…”—School Library Journal, Starred Review
