The lecture titled “Pain, Hope, Questions, and Community: an Evening with To Write Love On Her Arms,” is where Tworkowski will share the story of how the organization began over 10 years ago. He will also tell stories and talk about the importance of honesty and community. Tworkowski ultimately wishes for students to feel that they are not alone and that their story is important.
