    Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk

    By Kathleen Rooney

    85 year old Lillian takes a 10 mile walk around Manhattan on New Year’s Eve allowing the reader to experience a portrait of this remarkable woman across the canvas of a changing America: from the Jazz Age and the Great Depression to the onset of the AIDS epidemic, to the birth of hip-hop.

    In A Knapsack Full of Dreams, Cathy Crowe details her lifelong commitment as a nurse and social justice activist—particularly her thirty years as a Street Nurse—with passion, grace, and fortitude. Cathy's reading from her book A Knapsack Full of Dreams will move you, then inspire you to act.
