grand opening - boerum hill, brooklyn
Grumpy friends, we are so excited to open our doors to our new home in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn.
Please join us on Saturday, November 10, 2012 for a full evening of events.
Our newest Grumpy Bert family member, Lost Lit, will begin the evening by hosting a film screening of Nicole Opper’s award winning documentary, Off and Running. The film follows 17-year-old, African-American, Avery Klein-Cloud who tries to make sense of her transracially adopted, diverse family. See Avery navigate, deal and not deal with the questions of identity, race, family and her place in this world.
Following the screening, a live panel discussion will be held with special guests: Sharese Bullock (film producer), and Avery and Rafi Klein-Cloud (featured in the film). Kacy Ames-Heron (Korean adoptee, therapist) will moderate the panel.
