Gotta Find a Home 3: Conversations on the Streets (Volume 3) Paperback – Large Print, May 25, 2017
About the Author
Dennis Cardiff has been involved with street people since 2010, when he began to reach out, on his own, to some of the people without homes who he encountered in his daily life. In his new book, he documents conversations he's had with them over the past six years and, in the process, gives those who are often robbed of their humanity a human face. Written in diary form by month, the author chronicles the lives of people who are often ignored, feared or reviled. About this project, Cardiff says, "Writing about the homeless and helping the homeless, has given my life a purpose that it didn't have before. Documenting their stories will, I hope, introduce them to the public in a non-threatening way. Some panhandlers look intimidating, but that disappears when one sees them laugh." by Diane Walters Dennis Cardiff lives with his wife in Ottawa, Canada. They each have two grown sons from previous marriages. An artist of many talents, Cardiff has been a professional portrait painter since 1972. He studied art at the Ontario College of Art, University of Saskatchewan and the University of Ottawa. As a writer, his poetry has been published in the Sheaf, the University of Saskatchewan's newspaper, the Writing.com Anthology and an online poetry magazine, Shadowlands Express.
