Salt Lake City, UT – During the Rwandan genocide in 1994, hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina refused to succumb to the madness that surrounded him. Instead, he protected more than 1200 Tutsis and Hutu moderates who were in danger of losing their lives to homicidal mobs. Rusesabagina's actions were the subject of the film "Hotel Rwanda." Now he's written his autobiography. It details the inner life of a man who found a vast reserve of courage ... an "Ordinary Man" who became a hero.

  • On Wednesday, March 7th, Paul Rusesabagina will speak at the Davis County Library. All tickets for the event have been distributed. A limited number of stand-by seats may be available. For more information, call the library at 801-451-2322 or click here
  • Listen to NPR's interview with Mr. Rusesabagina.
