the GRASS will be GREENER
on the OTHER SIDE
Join us August 4, at 6 PM,
for an uplifting reading-tour
of nature-inspired work
by an amazing group of young writers
from Promise House
(224 W. Page St., Dallas, 75208)
We invite you to share this rare experience
of youth finding their place in the world,
a parable for us all
in these ecologically challenging times.
The tour, reading, and reception are FREE,
but your feelings of inspiration will be priceless.
Like trees and grasses that sprout and grow under the most adverse conditions, these young writers and artists have faced more challenges as teens than many of us will ever know in a lifetime. Your presence will water their souls.
They have come to us from Promise House to share
their journey of reclaiming space from nearby parks
to the lushness of their minds.
Be a part of this miracle of growth, and you'll grow, too!
