Giving over two years of your life as a Peace Corps Volunteer is admirable, but giving up his life is more than Tyler Lloyd signed up for. Service Disrupted is an engaging memoir in which Tyler tells of his adventures and his eagerness to share his knowledge of gardening and agriculture with the kind and quirky villagers in Burkina Faso, Africa.
But when he learns that his end of service medical exam showed a positive HIV test, Tyler’s mind becomes consumed with emotion, worry, and despair. The ups and downs will keep you reading to the end with a new respect for Peace Corps Volunteers and the African people. You’ll be both fascinated and saddened by the Sub-Saharan people who have become much more than a village to him, as he awaits the answer to what his future holds.
Tyler Lloyd served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Burkina Faso from 2012 to 2014. Originally from Kentucky, he currently calls Washington, DC home. Tyler enjoys exploring the city on his bike, drinking strong coffee, and telling stories through photography, video, podcasts, and the written word. Service Disrupted: My Peace Corps Story is Tyler’s first book. For more about Tyler and his other works, visit www.tyleredwardlloyd.com.
