The Burke Women’s Fund, operating under the auspices of the Community Foundation of Burke County, will feature “The Hundred Story Home” by Kathy Izard in a book discussion that will take place at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, via Zoom.
This discussion will be led by Ashley Brown, BWF steering committee member, and will focus on Izard’s journey from being a graphic designer to building a home for Charlotte’s homeless.
