Saturday: 'Tapestries of Hope' to be shown at Kepler's

 

"Tapestries of Hope," a documentary by Woodside filmmaker Michealene Cristini Risley, will be shown at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, at the Roy Kepler Pavilion in Kepler's bookstore in Menlo Park.

The 77-minute film is about Betty Makoni, founder of the Girl Child Network in Zimbabwe, which helps girls who have been sexually abused and fights the myth that having sex with a virgin can cure HIV/AIDS. The network has now spread to help girls around the world.

Ms. Risley will introduce the film and talk about making it. She is also the co-author of the Kepler's bestseller, "This is Not the Life I Ordered," which can be purchased at the event.

Tickets are $12 each. Kepler's bookstore is at 1010 El Camino Real in Menlo Park.
