My Father, Maker of The Trees is Eric Irivuzumugabe's story of physical survival and spiritual rebirth as he recounts his experiences during the 1994 Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. Forced to spend fifteen days hiding in a cypress tree with little food or water to survive the worst of the attacks. Irivuzumugabe emerged determined to start a new life for himself and his two surviving brothers.
Irivuzumugabe is the founder of Humura Ministries, an organization that supports the orphans of genocide, through which he ministers to hundreds of fatherless children in need of hope.
A discussion and book signing will follow a short presentation by Irivuzumugabe.
This event is sponsored by the Human Rights Center.
