Fenway Health auditorium, 10th floor, 1340 Boylston Street, Boston
Author Tom Martorelli will discuss his book, ‘For People, Not For Profit: A History of Fenway Health’s First Forty Years’ and sign copies at a November 16 book signing event in Fenway’s Health’s 1340 Boylston Street auditorium.
Based on research, interviews with over thirty historic and current Fenway leaders, and his own experiences on the health center’s Board of Directors in the 1970s, this real-life history covers the evolution of Fenway Health, the community health center movement, our community’s response to the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and the emerging field of LGBT health. Martorelli spent nearly two years interviewing people from across Fenway’s forty year history, digging through our archives and putting pen to paper to produce a book chock full of photos and personal reflections. You can read more about Tom and the book on his Wordpress blog site, forpeoplenotforprofit.com.
Reduced price copies of the book will be available for purchase at $10 for the softcover version and $20 for hardcover. Refreshments will be served.
