On Saturday, a Mount Airy native will be signing copies of her book, which was written to benefit a local homeless shelter.
Dr. Marisa McMillian Tomasic will be signing her book, Just Down the Tracks, on Saturday at Haymore Memorial Baptist Church fellowship hall, which is located at 319 Rockford St. in Mount Airy.
The self-published book is illustrated by local artist Wayne Easter, who will join Tomasic at the two-hour signing that begins at 3 p.m.
Just Down the Tracks uses poetry to share the quiet reflections of one man’s experience with homelessness.
“The inspiration for Just Down the Tracks was born out of the author’s desire to pay tribute to the memory of a family member who’d faced near homelessness and the grandmother who humbly and lovingly supported him through this powerfully challenging season of life,” wrote Tomasic.
“Witnessed through the eyes of a child and remembered with the wisdom of an adult, the author renders a simple, moving, first-person narrative of one man’s hope for renewal and restoration.”
Tomasic is a psychologist and freelance writer who lives with her two children in Pennsylvania.
