Life as a Lost Boy

Thursday, March 22, 2007

Civil war tore apart John Bul Dau's village in Sudan when he was 12 years old. He fled, as one of the "Lost Boys of Sudan," and eventually adapted to life in the United States. He joins us to talk about his memoir God Grew Tired of Us, and about his efforts to raise money for a health clinic in his old hometown.
