An Evening with Acclaimed Author Regina Calcaterra
Please join us for a night of inspiration and education. New York Times bestselling author Regina Calcaterra will discuss her critically acclaimed book Etched in Sand, a powerful memoir about her struggles and survival as a child in foster care on Long Island. Her book is available at most public libraries and from booksellers.
She will be followed by an educational panel (moderated by Mary Keane from You Gotta Believe, an organization that finds homes for older foster care youth) addressing the unique challenges that foster youth face and the many ways that the system can be improved. The panel will feature a teen in foster care, foster parents and staff from The Children’s Aid Society foster care program.
If you’re interested in becoming a foster parent or an advocate for foster youth, or you simply want to hear an amazing story, we encourage you to come to this special event.
