Joshua Coombes will speak about and sign his new book, Do Something for Nothing: Seeing Beneath the Surface of Homelessness, Through the Simple Act of a Haircut, on Tuesday, November 30th at 6:30pm at Boulder Book Store. Tickets for this event are $5 (plus a small processing fee) and are available on Eventbrite HERE or by clicking the button below.
About the Book:
In 2015, while working at a London hair salon, Joshua Coombes took to the streets with his scissors to build relationships with people sleeping rough in the capital. This inspired him to begin posting transformative images on social media to amplify their voices. #DoSomethingForNothing was born--a movement that encourages people to connect their skills and time to those who need it. Via the simple act of a haircut, readers are taken on a geographical and emotional journey into the lives of humans experiencing homelessness in different cities across the world.
Featuring never-before-seen photographs and all-new writing, Do Something for Nothing explores themes of love, acceptance, shame, and perseverance, while inviting us to see ourselves in one another and dissolve the negative stigmas surrounding homelessness. Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from this book will be donated to organizations dedicated to assisting unsheltered people.
This event is cosponsored by TGTHR
