Welcome, readers.  I have created these posts about South Sudan to provide background to The Good Braider, for book clubs, students, and general readers.  You’ll find videos, audio, links to researching South Sudan, profiles of young South Sudanese musicians, writers, athletes, friends. Check out the reading list for more stories about Sudan and other African countries.
My earlier novels include Flower Shadows about the Vietnam War. I lead programs for the  NH Humanities Council literacy program Connections  serving many immigrants and refugees. Through the Council, I worked with refugees from Bhutan to create a bilingual Nepali-English folktale, The Story of a Pumpkin.  Here’s a note about  writing The Good Braider.   My website  is  terryfarish.com
