Adult book Study in January
Among the Maasai, A Memoir,

“At once memoir, spiritual odyssey and cultural analysis, Among the Maasai is a gorgeous, honest book.”

About the book:
In 1999, Juliet Cutler leaves the United States to teach at the first school for Maasai girls in East Africa, making the beginning of a twenty-year journey to empower young Maasai women through education. Working alongside local teachers, Cutler is transformed by the community she finds in Tanzania and by witnessing the life-changing impacts of education on her students - many of whom face staggering poverty, forced marriages, genital cutting, and other forms of gender based violence.
Juliet Cutler will be at United Lutheran on Wednesday, February 5, at 7:00 pm to talk
about her book. All are welcome!
