Two Lives of Adventure

Dr. Jeff Salz & Alepho Deng

Two Lives of Adventure; One Surprising Discovery

Alepho Deng, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, survived genocide in his native Sudan, nine years in a Kenyan refugee camp in Kenya and a 1000-mile trek through war torn Africa before coming to the United States. In America he has managed to thrive in an environment as foreign to him as his Sudanese background would be to us. Deng co-authored a best-selling book, popular among students and adults alike, which has become the basis for a soon to be released movie starring Reese Witherspoon. His experiences and insights will both inform and inspire as he shares his life’s journeys.

Dr. Jeff Salz’s life as a mountain climber has led to careers as a professional expedition leader, a cultural anthropologist, and a consultant to numerous Fortune 500 companies. In the course of leading extreme climbs and expeditions for the past 40 years, Dr. Salz has discovered many things about himself and about the world around him. Through humor and poignancy he will enthrall the audience with his story as he also shares his most important discovery.

The event will be held on Sunday, September 28th in the Fellowship Center of The Village Church. Wine and hors d’ oeuvres will be served beginning at 6:00 p.m. The program will begin at 6:30 and will include time for audience questions. Advance ticket pricing of $20 will be available until September 24th at 5:00 p.m. After that time tickets will be $25. Student tickets are available at $10 each.
