Join us for an evening that celebrates “When Compassion Overcomes Fear.” Jerry Permenter, founder of the East Texas AIDS Project, will read excerpts from his forthcoming AIDS memoir about those years, including his personal struggles, to demonstrate the fear, compassion and aftermath of his years establishing a system of care for those living with HIV. This is his first public presentation of work from his AIDS memoir, “Red Dirt Boy.”
The event takes place Thursday, September 12, starting 7 p.m. (doors open at 6) at Bethany Presbyterian Church. It is FREE & open to all. Refreshments will be served.
This storytelling event is presented by The Gathering, an arts outreach ministry housed at Bethany.
