Free 'Pasta for Peace' dinner with local author Tom Rivers as guest speaker

posted by Billie Owens in Announcements, Pax Christi.

Local author Tom Rivers will be the guest speaker at the first free spaghetti dinner, "Pasta for Peace," at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, Sept. 15, at the First Presbyterian Church, 300 E. Main St. in Batavia.

The dinner is sponsored by Pax Christi Genesee County. Tom Rivers, who authored "Farm Hands," will share his "food for thought" -- his first-hand experience with farm workers, hard work and lessons from Western New York fields.

Pax Christi Genesee County is part of the national and international Catholic Peace Movement and operates locally on an interfaith basis. Pax Christi has sponsored programs such as a recent Interfaith Witness for Peace at Genesee Community College and a three-part series, "Understanding Islam for the 21st Century."
