Writers Live - Susi Prescott introduces Where Hummingbirds Dance
4th May @ Berkelouw Mona Vale
You are invited to meet Susi Prescott when she introduces Where Hummingbirds Dance.
Susi Prescott had it all. A large, busy family, a school teaching job she loved, a home on Sydney’s leafy North Shore. But with the sudden demise of her 30-year marriage, her world crumbles.
To everyone’s surprise, especially her own, Susi makes a momentous decision. She packs up her former life and moves to the city of Arequipa in Peru, where she starts working at Colegio Elohim, an impoverished school at the foot of the Andes. She plans to reinvent herself, to do some good, to heal.
Peru is a revelation, a chaotic mix of poverty, corruption and sexism – but also joy, ambition and pride. Susi learns valuable lessons: about hardship and injustice; about turning disaster into opportunity; about the nature of conflict and forgiveness.
She may even learn how to fall in love again ...
Where Hummingbirds Dance is a moving story about second chances, personal transformation and one woman’s power to make a difference in the world.
