Linda Sue Park is the Newbery-Award-winning author of A Long Walk to Water, which tells the true story of WFSS Founder Salva Dut, and his journey as a "Lost Boy" of Sudan. Linda Sue traveled to Boston in November to present at TEDxBeaconStreet. Her talk, "Can A Children's Book Change the World?" was inspiring and captivating.
In her talk she shared her life-long love of books and of finding hope in books as a young reader. She also related how her book, A Long Walk to Water, has inspired students around the world to raise funds for Water for South Sudan (WFSS). Since the book was published in 2010, students, their families, and school communities have raised over $1 million for WFSS.
