For our Internations members, here's a chance to get an inside view of the complex struggle between modernity and tradition in a Kenyan Maasai family.
This is also the current set-book for the Kenyan High School education system so you can also invite that teen you know for one afternoon of enlightening discussion.

About the book:
Blossoms of the Savannah is an account of two sisters, Taiyo and Resian, who are not only on the verge of womanhood, but are torn between their personal ambitions and duty to tradition. In this narrative, the author captures the reader's imagination as he traces the girls' excruciatingly painful steps as they struggle against FGM (Female Genital Mutilation).

All are welcome, including those who may not have the time to read the book. There is also a film on the same.
