Local Author Liz Hauck Comes to JP

Join author Liz Hauck on September 21 at 7 pm in our JP Headquarters for a book reading 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 on in JP with friends after school & volunteer opportunities. 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 are beyond thrilled to host this local author and educator and hope you will join us for this special event. Come for the stories and stay for a sundae!
