Vancouver book launch

Join Greater Van Gogos at the launch of the new SLF book, Powered by Love: A Grandmother’s Movement to End AIDS in Africa. For the first time, the story of these indomitable women has been documented.
Author Joanna Henry and photographer Alexis MacDonald visited eight African countries, interviewing and photographing hundreds of grandmothers who, with the support of their sisters in Canada and now around the world, are raising their grandchildren and rebuilding their communities. For a sneak peek, check out the book’s website.
