Laura Schroff, author of An Invisible Thread will be speaking about her award-winning book!
Open to the public.
This true story begins in 1986, when Laura is approached by a young panhandler while walking down a Manhattan street. After initially ignoring him, Laura turns back and the two end up sharing a meal at McDonald's. The meals become a regular meeting and Laura soon becomes a mentor and guardian angel of sorts to Maurice, whose drug-addicted family cannot meet his needs. Unknown to Maurice is the reality that Laura's "ideal" suburban upbringing in Huntington was also filled with domestic violence. Their friendship endures to the present and is an inspiring read.
