“…(Jenny) Reks has been very active promoting Mission E4 and getting help for Haiti, not only by making a presentation to the Foxboro book club and others, but also at her son’s school, Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood.
The school has adopted “Mountains Beyond Mountains” for its One Book-One Community read and will host the Pulitzer-prize winning author, Kidder, next Thursday night (March 24) for a free program starting at 6:30 p.m. at the school on Clapboardtree road in Westwood.
(Laurie) McDonald and (Jenny) Reks became friends when both had sons who became friends at Xaverian. Two other mothers in the group, Chris Gumaer of Foxboro and Rose Petti of Wrentham, also have sons who have graduated from XBHS.
Now, through the book club, they share a common desire to help Mimit and other Haitians living in poverty.”
Pulitzer Prize Winner Tracy Kidder will speak about his book Mountains Beyond Mountains, which is about Dr. Paul Farmer and his medical and humanitarian efforts in Haiti. The event is open to the public, and Tracy Kidder will be available to sign his book following the presentation. For event information, click here.
