MEET THE AUTHOR: "Sandra Uwiringiyimana"
The United Nations Bookshop invites you to a discussion with the author and Ms. Nanette Braun, Department of Global Communications.
Sandra Uwiringiyimana is an author and the co-founder of Jimbere Fund, an organization that aims to revitalize distressed communities and foster peace in Congo by empowering women economically.
How Dare the Sun Rise: Memoirs of a War Child (HarperCollins), is her remarkable and inspiring true story of how she survived a massacre in the Democratic Republic of Congo, immigrated to America, and overcame her trauma through art and activism. Sandra tells the story of her survival, of finding her place in a new country, of her hope for the future, and how she found a way to give voice to her people.
