Barbara Bush Library Friends Annual Meeting Monday, May 13@7:00 pm

The speaker for the Annual Meeting will be Carole Little, author of the memoir, Cutting the Strings. Little’s desire to make a difference in the world took her to a refuge camp on the Thai/Lao border where she taught and served as a missionary for more than a year. After traveling throughout Asia, she later accepted a position in Mexico to participate in a teaching exchange program. She stayed six years.

She is currently the President and CEO of Northwest Assistance Ministries.
Her book is a tale of hope, courage and perseverance and serves as a validation to all who contribute the time, talents and treasure to help others.
