Monterey, CA, December 13, 2018 – Interim is bringing renowned author and Los Angeles Times journalist Steve Lopez to the Monterey Bay. Join us for this engaging community presentation – Mr. Lopez Meets Mr. Ayers: Exploring Mental Illness and Homelessness.
Steve has won more than a dozen national journalism awards for his reporting and column writing at seven newspapers and four news magazines, and is a three-time Pulitzer finalist for commentary.
Steve is also famous for his popular novel, The Soloist, which was turned into a movie starring Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. The Soloist is a true story of the unlikely friendship between Nathaniel Ayers and Steve Lopez, which began when he spotted Ayers, who he learned was homeless and living with schizophrenia, playing a two-string violin on skid row in Los Angeles.
About the Event:
Steve Lopez will talk about his experiences and insights, with an emphasis on homelessness and the mental health system of care. Steve will also talk about his friendship with Nathaniel Ayers. A casual reception for all event attendees will follow the presentation. Includes light refreshments. Steve will be signing copies of his book, The Soloist!
