Liz Hauck Visits J.P. Licks
Friday, September 24, 2021
On September 21, 2021, local author Liz Hauck joined us in our JP Headquarters for a book reading and discussion of her new memoir, "Home Made: A Story of Grief, Groceries, Showing Up - and What We Make When We Make Dinner." Liz grew up in Roslindale, frequenting J.P. Licks in JP with friends after school and after her various volunteer experiences. In her new book, she shares stories about food and community with teenaged boy in state care living in a group home in JP. She volunteered there for three years following the death of her dad, Charlie Hauck, who co-directed the human services agency that ran a constellation of of group homes in Boston for decades. We were beyond thrilled to have hosted Liz plus, our neighbor Papercuts, JP's independent bookstore, made Liz's book available for people to purchase. More than 40 people came in to listen to the reading and chat with Liz on the last evening of summer, meeting their neighbors and connecting with each other. It's everything we want our stores to be and connecting with the team at Papercuts was incredibly special. We're so looking forward to hosting another local author soon.
