The Call of Kilimanjaro ~ Virtual Program for AdultsMonday April 19, 2021
6:00 PM until 7:30 PM
After his brother-in-law, Chris, passed away, Jeff Belanger made the decision to take the trip of a lifetime, both in honor of Chris and in pursuit of clarity about his own life and goals. One of the famed Seven Summits, Mt. Kilimanjaro in east Africa has been on Jeff’s radar since childhood. Based on his memoir, The Call of Kilimanjaro: Finding Hope Above the Clouds, this performance offers a multimedia tour of Tanzania and the great mountain that has inspired so many. Spiritual, motivational and uplifting, this program will take you up 19,341 feet to Africa’s highest peak and back home again. Registration begins March 22, online or by calling the library’s Reference Department at 860-652-7720. Registration with a valid email address is required in order to receive login information on the day of the Zoom meeting.
A hardcopy of Jeff Belanger's book, The Call of Kilimanjaro: Finding Hope Above the Clouds, is expected to be published March 9, 2021. Once the library receives its copy, you will be able to place a hold on it. To pre-order your own copy from Amazon.com, click here.
