Leah Bassoff and Laura DeLuca, authors of…

Educators Leah Bassoff and Laura DeLuca have spent many years supporting survivors of the conflicts in South Sudan, and their new book, Lost Girl Found, is a compelling introduction to South Sudan's history and culture as well as an inspiring example for those young girls who have yet to tell their stories.
In addition to donating the proceeds of Lost Girl Found to Africare, Leah and Laura were generous enough to discuss their work and their motivations with us.
Laura and I have both worked with young people from South Sudan who had arrived in the Boulder-Denver area, mostly with Lost Boys, helping them get into college and get established with homes.
Laura: I'm an anthropology lecturer at the University of Colorado Boulder, and I've worked in various parts of East Africa - Peace Corps volunteer in Kenya, Fulbright Scholar in Tanzania, and I spent time in South Sudan in 2005.
How did the two of you decide to collaborate on this book?
Leah: Laura and I met at a women's empowerment conference in Denver for Sudanese women where Laura was a presenter.
Laura: Boys had started coming over to the U.S. around 2000.
Leah Bassoff [left] and Laura DeLuca [right] have supported Lost Boys and Girls in Denver, Colorado for many years.
I have more of a knack for fiction, and since I've never been to Africa, Laura was really the eyes and ears for the book.
Laura: To me, the facts must be accurate, but young people want to be captivated.
Laura: I teach some discussion classes with first year college students.
Laura: I've known about Africare for a long time.
Laura: Ditto to what Leah said! I also want to push my field of anthropology to include fiction, or as some people say "faction. A story can be a better way to learn about history and culture. I want to inspire people to learn more about South Sudan, and to do that it's important to have a story driving things.
Thanks Leah and Laura.
