Adult Program Series: Afternoon Sojourns

Wednesday, Jan. 20, at 4 p.m.

“Seeds for Change” Author Marly Cornell will discuss her book “Seeds for Change.” Crop scientist, seeds-man, and agricultural visionary, Suri Sehgal and Edda Sehgal will attend to share their enduring and lifelong commitment to helping others that is their family legacy. Cornell’s book “documents how Suri and Edda Sehgal, refugees who each escaped dangerous and difficult circumstances as children, came to America as young adults (from India and Germany respectively), met and fell in love, and went on to have more astonishing experiences as talented and visionary business leaders, generous philanthropists, and proud Americans. As a crop scientist, seedsman, and agricultural visionary, Suri became a respected and pivotal figure in the development of the global hybrid-seed industry. He and Edda have shared their resulting good fortune with those in need around the world. Their personal history is a chronicle of remarkable events and people, but most importantly, an enduring lifelong commitment to helping others that is their family legacy.”*
