Naremburn Library, 7 Central St, Naremburn
FREE event 

When a traumatic event changed Susi Prescott’s seemingly perfect life, she packed up her things and set off for an adventure of a lifetime. From a well-planned life as a wife, mother, teacher and writer, to the unexpected end of her thirty year marriage, Susi decided to turn tragedy into opportunity by dedicating her life to helping others in need.

Where Hummingbirds Dance is the story of Susi’s life changing experiences working in orphanages in Nepal, helping re-establish a local school in Rwanda and teaching children at the Elohim School in the Peruvian city of Arequipa – which has now become her life’s work. 

For the past six years Susi has worked at the school teaching English and providing support for children with learning difficulties. Susi also sits on the school board as International Advisor and has raised enough funds from Australia, Europe, U.S.A. and Canada to build a new wing for the school with classrooms, toilets, and a library and computer room.

Where Hummingbirds Dance is a moving story about second chances, personal transformation and making a difference in the world.

“Talk@Willoughby forms part of Willoughby’s extensive program of activities offered by our Library Services,” said Willoughby Mayor, Gail Giles-Gidney. “With close to 200 events held each month at Chatswood library and branch libraries, there is something for everyone to enjoy,” she said.

Lindfield Bookshop will provide copies of the book for sale and signing at the venue. Bookings are essential, please visit here
