BROOKINGS – "I've always been an artist." Those few words pretty much sum up a big piece of the life of Tracy Bezesky, 48, of Brookings.

And being an artist has recently brought her the great satisfaction of "just knowing that what I love to do the most can help the children in South Sudan have a school."

Bezesky sketched all the illustrations that appear on every page in a book that is being sold to raise funds for the Khor Wakow School Project of South Sudan, Africa. The school is a follow-up to a water-well project that has already been put in place.

The book, "David's Journey: The story of David Jal, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan," was written by Jal and Laura K. Jacobs, both of Sioux Falls.

Bezesky will join the authors at the Brookings Public Library at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 29, for a book talk and signing. The book can also be purchased at the South Dakota Art Museum in Brookings and at Zandbroz Variety in Sioux Falls.
