Homelessness Awareness Month: Daily Bread Exhibit

For the next two weeks, the library is pleased to be hosting photos by Lad Strayer in honor of Homelessness Awareness Month. Mr. Strayer took the photos as part of a story about homelessness in Lenawee County, written by Jennifer Burd. Ms. Burd was moved to write poems about her experiences after the story was published and sought out Mr. Strayer to take additional photos. The result was the book, Daily Bread. On Tuesday, November 29th, Ms. Burd will be here to read from her book and also discuss issues and common misconceptions with homelessness. Anyone who has written a poem about homelessness or written a response to Mr. Strayer's photos is asked to read them at the event. Non-perishable food donations will also be collected at the reading.
