the GRASS will be GREENER


Alejandro and his Tree  
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!



 RSVP here.
