“California’s Forgotten Children” Film Showing @ Christ's Church of Flagstaff
Jan 28 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm

We are so excited to be able to show “California’s Forgotten Children” again in Flagstaff!
“Fueled by the powerful stories of survivors and advocates and a desire to foster change alongside our partners across the globe, California’s Forgotten Children has become a movement. They have reached thousands of people internationally raising awareness about the prevalence of child sex trafficking through festival and community screenings; mobilizing change within communities by partnering with local advocates and survivor leaders; and inspiring education reform that advocates for bringing an end to the exploitation of children.

It is at the heart of California’s Forgotten Children’s mission to bring impact that sparks important conversations, and connects with audiences around the world to create change. This film gives viewers the tools to combat this epidemic and empowers survivors on their path to freedom. Let’s put an end to commercial sexual exploitation and not leave any child behind.”

            The Sedona Heritage Museum will host a talk and book signing event on Wednesday, January 29 at 10 a.m. with author Roger Naylor.

            Home to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, Arizona is a beacon for outdoor enthusiasts—the desert landscape brimming with opportunities for exploration and adventure. In this book travel writer Naylor takes his readers through the state parks of this amazing state. The parks featured throughout the book offer some of the best hiking, camping, fishing, boating, stargazing, and wildlife watching in the state. It’s no surprise to Arizona residents that these state parks offer the same kind of experience found in national parks and monuments—providing great adventure through easy day trips and weekend getaways.

            A consummate story-teller, Naylor’s book is part history, part romance and part guide book. His love for the state is vividly obvious in this – considered an entire story of Arizona as told through our award-winning system of state parks. As your guide, Roger helps his readers explore hidden treasures that represent the staggering diversity of the state – saguaro-dotted desert, rugged mountains, red rock canyons, rolling grasslands, shady forests, and a playground of rivers and lakes.

Naylor is an award-winning travel writer, an avid hiker, and a road-trip junkie. He is a member of the Arizona Tourism Hall of Fame and the author of several Arizona guides, including “Arizona Kicks on Route 66” and “Boots and Burgers: An Arizona Handbook for Hungry Hikers”. He will sign books after his presentation. This talk is free and open to the public.
