“I can’t imagine a more perfect book for arousing the power of American women (or women and men everywhere) to rush to the defense of our Congolese sisters. Lisa Shannon, runner extraordinaire, has with this forthright and readable book, crossed the finish line into the way of life the remainder of our time on this planet demands: she has entered the land of courage, compassion, and a fierce determination to stand by those who need us, where everyone understands they must be—our lives depend on it—a citizen of the world.” Alice Walker
Works in Progress
Lisa is currently co-authoring Yes, You! Everywoman’s Guide to Becoming a World Leader, based on interviews with hundreds of women change-makers from around the globe who began much like she did: without wealth, fame, or family connections.
