Book Reading & Benefit for Housing Initiatives

Join Housing Initiatives for a special book reading & benefit with Steve Cole, a Midwest author who spent several years as a community advocate in Milwaukee and Chicago. His book, Citizen Cardenas, is a fictional story about a man named Jesus Cárdenas, a Cuban refugee, living  on the mean streets of Chicago as he struggles with illness, alcohol, and homelessness.

Join fellow Housing Initiatives’ supporters for this reading as Steve paints the picture of a homeless individual battling mental illness and addiction. After the reading, Steve will be available to chat with attendees.

It’s great works of literature like this that allow us to relate and step into the shoes of our most vulnerable population.

Sunday, November 5th
Next Door Brewing (2439 Atwood Ave)
RSVP is appreciated but not required.

Steve is generously donating half the proceeds of all books sold to Housing Initiatives! Next Door Brewing Company is donating $1 from every beer sold!
