Crystal Wolfe is holding a book signing of "Our Invisible Neighbors" on Dec. 15.

You can come out and meet the author of the book that aims to break down the causes of the city’s growing homelessness crisis at a book signing in Woodside next month.

Crystal Wolfe, author of “Our Invisible Neighbors” and a Maspeth resident, will be speaking on the myths surrounding homelessness, some of the main causes that lead to homelessness, and the solutions to the city’s crisis which sees nearly 60,000 people sleeping in the street every night, during her very first book signing event at the St. Sebastian Parish Center on Dec. 15, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

To gather information for her book, Wolfe spoke to more than 100 organizations and nearly 200 sources for “Our Invisible Neighbors,” including Community Board 5 (CB 5) and their Homeless Subcommittee.

She spoke with elected officials and heard their plans on how to curb the rising homeless numbers, and help prevent people from becoming homeless in the first place, including Assemblyman Andrew Hevesi and his Home Stability Support (HSS) program.

Wolfe did not just pen a book on homelessness; she has gotten involved in other ways, such as founding the nonprofit organization Catering for the Homeless, which works with catering companies, acting as an intermediary between the caterers and food pantries, nonprofits, church organizations and others to bring leftover food to the homeless.

She also worked tirelessly to help an elderly homeless woman find a job and an apartment of her own so she can get off the streets, among many other initiatives to help the city’s homeless live day to day.

Wolfe will be selling and signing books at the event as well. Books are $20 each and 10 percentof the proceeds will be donated to St. Sebastian Parish Center, which is located at 39-60 57th St.
