Thoughtful Thursdays – Amy Bass – One Goal: A Coach, a Team and the Game that Brought a Divided Town Together
July 12, 2018 @ 5:15 pm - 6:15 pm
Amy Bass speaks on her award winning book, “One Goal: A Coach, a Team and the Game that Brought a Divided Town Together”. She tells the inspiring story of how the longtime Lewiston, Maine community and its newly arrived Somali immigrants came together on the soccer field to chase dreams of national glory. This team of well entrenched locals and Somali immigrants, led by Coach McGraw, built a team with one goal: the first state soccer championship in Lewiston history. This demonstrates what happens when America works the way it is supposed to, offering a testament to the power of community and a hope for our times.
This event is free and open to the public – kid-friendly.
