LUNCH WITH THE IDAHO WRITERS GUILD

Join the Idaho Writers Guild for Literary Lunch on August 16th with Special Guest Lori Waselchuk

Tuesday, August 16th, 11:30-1:30
Smoky Mountain Pizza, 415 E. Parkcenter Blvd., Boise

Lori Waselchuk will speak about different aspects of documentary photography, including photojournalism, arts activism and international work, as well as how she created and published her new photo book, Grace Before Dying. Lori’s book tells the emotional story of an extraordinary breakthrough in humanity that has helped to transform one of the most dangerous maximum security prisons in the United States, the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola, into one of the least violent. By allowing volunteer inmates to comfort fellow inmates who are elderly or terminally ill, a new hospice program helps convicts assert and affirm their humanity in an environment designed to isolate and punish. Poignant quotes from the incarcerated hospice volunteers and patients accompany searing photographs that chart the development of the program through a carefully built sequence.

Hope to see you on August 16th!
