"What if we had known then that our final act of loyalty to him would sow the seeds of our children's betrayal, their fate and their children's children's also; that the Lualaba of his drawings was the mouth of the great Congo of our downfall...?"

-- Petina Gappah, Out of Darkness, Shining Light

The Prize Ceremony and Reading for the ninth Chautauqua Prize Winner, Out of Darkness, Shining Light, goes live Monday, August 10th at 3:30 pm EDT on CHQ Assembly.

A reminder to CLSC members: while Chautauqua Prize Winners are not technically CLSC selections, they do count toward graduation requirements (and get CLSC discounts!).
