Empty Chairs: A true story about building community (Paperback)
This is a story about building community and friendship. Written as if it were a children's story, this book tells how one girl (and the boy she loved) made space in their lives to open their home each week to eat with others and in doing so built something no one expected. The story is illustrated beautifully by the actual people who came to supper on Mondays and ate at her table.
FROM THE REAR COVER: What do you do when your heart's full of love but your table has empty spaces? The girl in this story faced just that and had a grand idea that reached across her city. We never learn the girl's name, we never learn the name of the city, but perhaps it doesn't matter. This is a true story. And, perhaps, it could also be your story.
