About 110 people turned out for the second annual One Community, One Book program Sunday, Oct. 2, sponsored by the Arcadia’s Best Foundation.
The panel consisted of the pastor of Good Shepherd, two Arcadia High school students, and two adults, including a teacher. All strongly agreed that the book captured the reality of the issues portrayed, with one woman saying it has impacted her life, for the first time allowing her to come to terms with her troubled youth and move on with her life.
Mayor Gary Kovacic provided a surprise presentation of a certificate of recognition to Shiepe.
Attendees enjoyed free sandwiches and drinks provided by Togo’s on Huntington Drive.
