Are you familiar with the movie “The Soloist”? It stars Jamie Foxx and Robert Downey Jr. The plot is based on the true story of Nathaniel Ayers, a musician who developed schizophrenia and became homeless.
Some years ago, I heard Nathaniel’s sister, Jennifer Ayers-Moore, speak at a NAMI conference in St. Paul and we became friends. She has recently published a book entitled “Hear the Music, Memoirs from the Sister of the Soloist”. If you have ears to hear, you will “hear the music” in Jennifer’s story and be a better person for it. You should also know that Jennifer uses proceeds from book sales to purchase socks for agencies caring for people with mental health conditions. I hope you’ll show some love (both for yourself and others) by buying a copy of her book.
