We had a successful book launch in Washington DC on Friday, January 06. We drove back to New Jersey overnight. On Saturday, January 07 we drove through a snowstorm for my second book launch event. We reached Lowell, Massachusetts for the event after a usual five-hour journey that took us ten hours. When we arrived in Lowell Kenyans were waiting for us. We got there on Sunday at 2 am in the morning. Kenyans living in Boston had organized the event. Two people flew from Texas and California respectfully for the event. The team in Boston pulled pull off a great event. They supported the launch with much love. We all felt it.
The P.C.E.A Neema Community Church availed us the venue. We thank the women who made tea and served all the guests. People braved the cold and the snow and showed up. We had a very progressive conversation. I have done many speaking events in the US in the past but this was the first time l got to speak to Kenyans in the Diaspora whose ages ranged from the early teens to the late 60s. The conversation was both wide-ranging and amazing. This was my most dynamic and robust book launch event after my first launch of the book in Nairobi that took place in November last year.
I sincerely and deeply appreciate the efforts of the Boston committee and Kenyans who made this launch a great success. I was honored by the opportunity I was given to meet up with my compatriots. You made my short time in Lowell very memorable. I thank you very much! You strengthen my belief that our generation will change our country.
I also wish to thank the entire community of Boston for giving me your inaugural Samrack Award for Social Act of Courage. I will always treasure it and the memories of the visit.READ MORE
