Under the Reading Tree

Can you imagine life without any books to read? Find out how reading can break the cycle of poverty and effect positive changes in East Africa. Victoria author Lisa Lynam will present a slide show about her experiences in Uganda, where she worked with the Canadian organization "Under the Reading Tree" whose mission is to bring literacy to poverty-stricken communities.

Lisa is an athlete and has written a book called Triathalon for Women: a Mind-Body-Spirit Approach for Female Athletes (New York: Meyer & Meyer Sport, c2007).
