Author Event: Kathy Izard - The Hundred Story Home If you are interested in attending this event, please RSVP to In The Hundred Story Home, Kathy Izard writes about accepting an unexpected midlife challenge to quit her job to build housing for the homeless and succeeds in providing a home for over one hundred men and women in Charlotte, NC. This inspiring memoir reminds us that not only can we help change the world, but in doing so we change ourselves. Author Bio: Kathy Izard was an award-winning graphic designer for twenty years in Charlotte before launching the pilot program Homeless to Homes for the interfaith Urban Ministry Center in 2007. She led the city-wide effort to build Moore Place, Charlotte’s first permanent supportive housing for chronically homeless men and women. After Moore Place opened in 2012, Kathy worked on numerous civic projects most recently leading the development campaign for HopeWay, Charlotte’s first nonprofit residential mental health treatment center which opened in 2016. She wrote about her efforts in the originally self-published memoir The Hundred Story Home which received the 2017 Christopher Award. In 2017, the book and movie rights to her story were purchased by Thomas Nelson, a division of Harper Collins, and a new edition released June 2018. Can’t make the event?
