Author Tracy Kidder on Healing the Homeless

Kidder spoke about his book Rough Sleepers: Dr. Jim O’Connell’s Urgent Mission to Bring Healing to Homeless People at BC's 2023 University Convocation. 

“If you run into homeless people on the street, the biggest thing that Jim would say would be talk to them, look at them, smile at them. That is one of the biggest deficits that homeless people suffer—the sheer loneliness of their condition.”
