On Tuesday, September 7, KLRU ~ together with CASA of Travis County ~ will host a screening of “Off and Running” at Austin’s paramount theater.

From the KLRU website:

Off and Running tells the story of Brooklyn teenager Avery, a track star with a bright future. She is the adopted African-American child of white Jewish lesbians. Her older brother is black and Puerto Rican and her younger brother is Korean. Though it may not look typical, Avery’s household is like most American homes — until Avery writes to her birth mother and the response throws her into crisis. She struggles over her “true” identity, the circumstances of her adoption and her estrangement from black culture. Just when it seems as if her life is unraveling, Avery decides to pick up the pieces and make sense of her identity, with inspiring results.

For more information or to RSVP, go HERE to the KLRU website.
