On Thursday, Dec. 19th at 5 pm the ICL will be visited by Jo Patti, an American-born New Zealand citizen who has worked mostly as a contractor for the US in fields spanning education, health, research and training.
Her job has taken her around the world, from helping educate women in countries living under Sharia law, to working with the Gumbaynggir Aboriginal communities in Australia.
Jo is also the author of numerous books – including "Kismet", a book of poetry, and "Getting Time Off the X", a non-fiction book filled with stories of people Jo has met from all across the world.
While at the ICL Jo will be doing readings from her books and hosting discussions about her practice of writing – as well as other life experiences that have shaped her as an author.
Refreshments will be provided, and we hope to see you there!
