Last Word from Liberia
Once again it’s late at night. And what can I say except that once again it’s going to be tough to leave this amazing country and the remarkable group of people I’ve had the privilege of working with here. We’ve had some animated discussions about all manner of things. We’ve heard some great stories too, and stories with great potential. And before too much longer the first Liberian-authored and Liberian-illustrated books will be in the hands of Liberian children. Don’t I wish I could be here to witness that!
