Myriam Arthur: Forgiven
10:30 - 11:30am | FREE
C3 provides stimulating and enjoyable learning opportunities in a relaxed and social setting. This is an hour long cultural presentation geared towards people of retirement age, though everyone is welcome.
Author Myriam Arthur speaks about her memoir titled Forgiven: set in Bolivia in 1985, Forgiven begins with Myriam’s son, who has just returned from university in California, sharing shattering news: he thinks he may have been infected with AIDS. Blaming herself for the tragedy, Myriam embarks on a remarkable journey into an unknown world of drug smuggling, and judiciary politics. It is through these trials that she finds hope, and experiences the pinnacle of love and forgiveness. REGISTER NOW
