Homeless Guests Release New Book

 

Washington, DC—January 12, 2018—Central Union Mission is proud to announce the release of a second book of writings titled Our Words by the men of Central Union Mission.

Our WordsHelp us celebrate this occasion at our book release party on January 12, 2018, at 65 Massachusetts Avenue, NW from 11:00 am to 12:00 noon.   Some of the authors, who are formerly homeless men now residing at the shelter, will read their original writings.
According to Central Union Mission Director of Education Bonnie Pritchard, “Our Words is the culmination of several years of effort by students in our Spiritual Transformation Program. While producing the book helped the men develop basic writing skills and communication, its main result has been to offer them healing creativity and emotional understanding.”
The Central Union Mission’s Book Release Party is free and open to the public. Members of the community can bring friends and family to enjoy the readings and light appetizers; books will be available for purchase for $5. Please contact Deborah Chambers at 202-534-9965 cell or dchambers@missiondc.org to coordinate interviews.
