AN EVENING WITH TWO EXTRAODINARY WOMEN
Mags Riordan and Suzanne Strempek Shea
Wednesday, April 11th @ 7:30pm ~ Tickets $10
Mags Riordan is a guidance counselor turned humanitarian who has built and now runs a medical clinic in the south central African country of Malawi.
Riordan first traveled to Malawi from her native County Kerry nearly 20 years ago, on the anniversary of her son Billy’s drowning death in the impoverished but physically beautiful country. After initially considering starting a school in Malawi’s Cape Maclear to honor her son’s memory, Mags recognized a more pressing need: basic medical care in a land where there is one doctor for every 800,000 people.
Suzanne Strempek Shea is author of This Is Paradise, a gripping storing that recounts Riordan’s remarkable story of grief, grace and determination.
