For this first-ever Family Action Network (FAN) event at Evanston Township High School, Beah will discuss his life and his new book, his first novel, Radiance of Tomorrow. In Radiance of Tomorrow, he examines postwar life in Sierra Leone through the eyes of two friends who return to their village and try to repair what the civil war has destroyed. The author hopes readers will learn something about the strength of human spirit by reading this book. “We all find joy and radiance and a reason to move on even in the most dire of circumstances. Even in chaos and madness, there’s still a beauty that comes from just the vibrancy of another human spirit.”
