Breakfast Book Club: “My Beautiful Birds” by Suzanne Del Rizzo

Add to calendar

The Holocaust Museum Houston Friends of The Boniuk Library invite you to join our Breakfast Book Club for a discussion of My Beautiful Birds by Suzanne Del Rizzo.  January 11, 2018, 9:00am – 10:00am.

This children’s book tells the story of Sami who, living in a refugee camp, can’t forget his pet pigeons and the home his family has left behind. One day a canary, a dove, and a rose finch fly into his camp. They flutter around Sami and settle on his outstretched arms. For Sami it is one step in a long healing process at last.

This event is free, but participants must pay for their own breakfast.

District provided services such as safety patrols by off-duty HPD officers, graffiti abatement, trash pick-up, maintenance of esplanades, among other services outlined in the Districts’ Assessment Plan, that are supplemental to services provided by the City of Houston, had been reduced in Mid-November and ceased completely as of December 11. The District had to cease the services due to unpaid assessments from some of the commercial property owners within the District. Delinquent assessments for 2016 and prior years are being collected for services that were delivered in 2017. The current lawsuit status does not affect the collection of delinquent assessments due for 2016 and prior years for services rendered for calendar year 2017. Please direct questions regarding the cessation of services to Executive Director, Ben Brewer at BBrewer@MontroseDistrict.org. We are committed to helping our neighborhood remain the safe, vibrant and attractive place to live and do business and would like to hear from you on how we can continue to work together in this effort.
