Deogratias (Deo) Niyizonkiza, the hero of Tracy Kidder’s
Strength in What Remains (The 2010
University Freshmen Reading Book), is coming to STJ!
Strength in What Remains tells the true tale of an
African college student who escaped genocide in Burundi and Rwanda,
and went from being homeless in New York City to a student at
Columbia University and Harvard University’s School of Public
Health. This story is about his courage and survival, as well as
the ordinary New York heroes who helped him on his way.
