Village Books is pleased to include Susan Greisen as part of our Virtual Lit Live Event series!
In Search of Pink Flamingos is a story of a young woman who defies her parents’ demands to become a farmer's wife. At age nineteen, with a suitcase full of farm-smarts and a license to be a practical nurse, Susan joins the Peace Corps in Africa. She meets multiple challenges in her remote Liberian village and falls short of her unrealistic goals. An interracial romance further aggravates her parents who eventually disown her. When Susan finds the pink flamingos, she discovers what she had been searching for all along. Her journey is one of passion, strength and finding forgiveness and unconditional love.
Susan E. Greisen, raised on a remote farm in Nebraska, searched for adventure and a broader understanding of life. Her work as a nurse took her to remote parts of the world with Peace Corps and CARE. She has journeyed to over forty countries on six continents and is a Whatcom published poet and author. Susan’s travel photographs have been published online by the BBC News.
