We will be discussing "Sleeping in My Jeans", by Connie King Leonard. The book is about a teenage girl who finds herself homeless with her family and grapples with every day life and survival. Join us for this discussion, as well as sharing stories about our experiences and interactions with our friends experiencing homelessness. Books will be available one month before the discussion at the Ask Us Desk for pick up. Registration not required.
Contact the Joy Matteson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (630) 960-1200 with questions.
