Hi, I’m Jim Averbeck.

 As a civil engineer with Peace Corps/Africa, I worked on water & health projects - from village led efforts to the United Nations Guineau Worm Eradication Program. I bring a deep knowledge of the issues driving A LONG WALK TO WATER to my school presentation and discussions with students.

 As the illustrator of the original version of the book, I make available to teachers & librarians all the full-color illustrations that accompanied it. I hope you and your students enjoy them.

Send Me the Original Illustrations
