Come and hear Laura Schroff, Walt Whitman alumnus and author of An Invisible Thread: The True Story of An 11-Year-Old Panhandler, a Busy Sales Executive and an Unlikely Meeting With Destiny, as she relates the compelling story behind her The New York Times best-selling book.
It is based on Ms. Schroff’s own true story and narrates the unexpected connection between a busy ad executive and a hungry little boy, Maurice Mazyck – born to an abusive father, drug-addicted mother and living in welfare hotels with his knife-wielding grandmother. The result is a complex and moving story of how two lives were meant to converge on a Manhattan street corner one fateful day.

This event is co-hosted with South Huntington Against Drugs (SHAD).
