Book-to-Action: Book Discussion
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Topic: Teen Homelessness. Partnering with Mobile Hope, an organization that works with and assists homeless teens, we will be discussing the book, Can't Get There From Here by Todd Strasser.  
She calls herself Maybe. Thrown out by her abusive mom, she struggles to survive on the streets of New York with homeless teens who become a family in the asphalt jungle. Without sentimentality or exploitation, Maybe's disturbing first person narrative lets readers know exactly what it's like to live without shelter. 
Service Project to follow on Saturday, Aug. 18, 1-3 p.m. For more information on Mobile Hope:   http://www.mobilehopeloudoun.org/
