Book to Action with Father Greg Boyle at Edendale Branch Library

The Edendale Branch of Los Angeles Public Library, located in Echo Park, recently wrapped up their 2019 Book to Action series which explored the themes of mass incarceration and re-entry. The library selected The Mars Room by Rachel Kushner and worked with A New Way of Life Re-Entry Project as their main community partner. Below is a short clip and the complete video of one event in their Book to Action series: An Evening with Father Greg Boyle, founder of Homeboy Industries. Librarian Angi Brzycki explains the Book to Action civic engagement activity at the 1:50 mark, but both the short clip and full video are highly recommended viewing.
