This year, Georgetown Ministry Center (GMC) marks 30 years of service to people experiencing homelessness in our community. In anticipation of its upcoming annual benefit, the Spirit of Georgetown, GMC invites you to a special Q&A conversation with author, journalist and host of the 2017 Spirit of Georgetown, Sally Quinn, and Leon Weiseltier, of Brookings Institute, writer, critic, philosopher and magazine editor. They sit down to discuss her new book, Finding Magic: A Spiritual Memoir, touching upon the topics of spirituality and the ways our various faiths unite us all and shape our views on how to care for people who are less fortunate, as is GMC’s mission.
The event is free, but space is limited. Please RSVP on our Eventbrite page.
Tickets to the 2017 Spirit of Georgetown will be available for sale at the event. Copies of Sally’s book will be for sale and she will be available for book-signing after the Q&A.
