Join us for 60 years of “Transforming Diamonds in the Rough” with NY Times Best-Selling author Andy AndrewsAndy Andrews 2

In honor the Mission’s 60th Anniversary, we invite you to join us as we celebrate 60 years of “Transforming Diamonds in the Rough” with special guest New York Times best-selling author Andy Andrews.

When Andy was 19, he lost his mother to cancer and his father in an automobile accident within the span of a few months. After the death of his parents, Andrews spent over a year homeless on the coast of Alabama, sleeping under the Gulf State Park Pier or an occasional garage. During this time that he came up with the “seven decisions” that eventually shaped the manuscript of his 2002 best-selling novel The Traveler’s Gift.

Join us Thursday, October 22nd at the Strand Theater in Downtown Shreveport (Valet Service available). Visit www.sbrescuemission.com/andyandrews for event information.
