The Courage to Love

June 3, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Young-Williams Animal Center is proud to host Knoxville resident and award-winning author, artist, and survivor Jody Sims as she presents her art and a reading from her new book, “Sanctuary: The Will to Live, The Courage to Love,” in celebration of National Cancer Survivors Day.

Jody’s new book centers around her series of portrait paintings of farm animals who have been rescued from abuse or neglect and who are now living and thriving in sanctuaries. Through her creative use of inspirational quotes and soulful art, Jody unfolds her awakening to the oneness of all sentient beings and to her own personal quest for sanctuary after a long battle with Stage 3 breast cancer.
