www.BookShorts.com - Cathy Crowe always wanted to be a nurse, but she never planned to be a Street Nurse—a title she uses to evoke the horror of homelessness in a rich country like Canada. This first-hand experience with the disgrace of homelessness turned her into a housing advocate and introduced her to the ten contributors to her new book Dying For A Home.
At the Toronto launch event attended by more than 80 people and press, Cathy graciously shared the stage with many of the book's contributors, including Kerre Briggs, who captured in just a few minutes the reality, wry humour, and determined hope of those like him who work hard to keep the issue on political agendas.
Dying for a Home: Homeless Activists Speak Out, is now available in bookstores; more about Cathy and her work is available at Toronto Disaster Relief Committee website.
Authored by Cathy Crowe with contributors Nancy Baker, Brian Boyd, Bonnie and Kerre Briggs, Kevin Clarke, The Colonel, Dri, James Kagoshima, Marty Lang, and Melvin Tipping. Additional Video Footage Courtesy of David Rubinoff.
