The Friday Café is honored to welcome distinguished journalist Michael Kimmelman as guest speaker at a benefit event in support of our work.
The theme of the evening is Tackling Homelessness: Hope Amid the Challenge. Mr. Kimmelman will share insights gained while documenting the efforts of the city of Houston to find homes for tens of thousands of unhoused residents.
Michael Kimmelman is the architecture critic of The New York Times. He has reported from more than 40 countries, was previously The Times’s chief art critic and, based in Berlin, created the Abroad column, covering cultural and political affairs across Europe and the Middle East. Twice a Pulitzer Prize finalist, he is the founder and editor-at-large of a new venture focused on global challenges and progress called Headway.
The evening will also feature the premier of a short video about the Friday Café by Café volunteer and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker John MacGibbon, a member of Pentecostal Tabernacle Church.
The event will conclude with light refreshments.
