Tapestry: Art and Ideas series with Steven Wallace
A moderated discussion with the author, Steven Wallace. Written with sensitivity and devastating self-awareness, Obroni and the Chocolate Factory is Steven’s chaotic, fascinating, and bemusing journey to create a successful international business that aspired to do a bit of good in the world. This rollicking love letter to both Ghana and the world of business is a rare glimpse into the mind of an unusually literate and articulate entrepreneur.
This event takes place at Boswell Book Company on 11/21/2017 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Steven’s latest presentation, a Tedx talk in Accra, Ghana. April 2016.
“When he spoke, people listened. So it should not have surprised me when hundreds of students mobbed him afterwards. I heard them ask questions like, ‘Why can’t someone like HIM be our president?’ … He is one of the rare persons with the personal integrity, commitment to community, and business know-how so essential to human life. And he tells a very important, compelling story. I couldn’t have asked for anything more from a speaker, and I am so grateful to you for sharing so much of yourself with our students.”
— Jane Gottlick, Ph.D., Academic Coordinator, World Affairs Seminar

“It’s difficult to put into words how much it meant to the AFS Foundation to have you speak to the group last week! You are so inspiring . . . To be honest, the evening fulfilled all the ‘dreams’ of the planning committee, and we were quite successful both in terms of the number attending and the money raised. You provided a powerful message of what AFS can mean to an individual and to the world . . . “
