As different as these two men are, they have one thing in common. Each one wanted a brother and they found one in each other. Join us for an evening with David C. Page sharing excerpts from his book, inspiring art from Gordon and the awe inspiring tale of Another Man’s Shoes.
They meet and become friends. David’s role in this friendship is to live his life fully, scouting out interesting stories and characters and then bringing them back to fill the emptiness in Gordon’s life.
” I always saw my brother as a rolling miracle. And me, I am the one who periodically had the privilege of being his legs. I brought my brother stories gathered from all corners of the world alive with color and noise and movement. My brother brought me the courage to be still. In stillness, I wrote this book.”
This Novel is about how two men who are separated by enormous differences and a continent become brothers. Video
