Thurs, September 13th at 6:30. Cocktails & Conversation: Guns & Our Schools


Join us at Alvin & Friends for our popular Cocktails & Conversation series as literary super-star Amy Bass interviews Rhiannon Navin, author of Only Child, and Kate Way, whose debut documentary film G is for Gun recently aired on PBS. Navin’s book – which has garnered rave reviews – tells the story of six-year-old Zach, who survives a deadly shooting in his school and finds the strength to help the adults in his life pull through their darkest hour. Way’s film documents a growing program in Ohio that is training school staff to respond to active shooter situations with guns, and follows the story of one Ohio community divided over arming its teachers.

The evening will begin at 6:30 p.m. at Alvin & Friends, 14 Memorial Highway,

and the cost is $50 per person (includes two glasses of wine or beer and nibbles).
