Pennsylvania Spiritual Center to Host Rwandan Survivor March 7

HNP Communications Franciscan World

ASTON, Pa. — Rwandan native and author Immaculee Ilibagiza will speak March 7 at the annual Charism Day at the Franciscan Spiritual Center here.

The 1 p.m. program, called “A Story of Faith, Hope and Forgiveness,” will include a book signing of Ilibagiza’s New York Times best-seller Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust.

According to a publication of the spiritual center, located outside Philadelphia, Ilibagiza’s publisher, Wayne Dyer, is quoted as saying, “There is something much more than charisma at work here — Immaculee not only writes and speaks about unconditional love and forgiveness, but she radiates it wherever she goes.”

In 2008, Ilibagiza was keynote speaker at the commencement ceremony of Siena College in Loudonville, N.Y.
