What: Josephine’s Hardtime Cooking Restaurant welcomes Dr. Berlean M. Burris for a Sunday Brunch book signing of her new book “Just Stand.”

Breaking her silence, Dr. Burris shares with readers the ordeal she and her family were forced to endure prior to, during and even after Attorney Burris was appointed Senator by then Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich.

Finding that she and her family were unable to fight against a political storm of false accusations, Dr. Burris found strength by journaling her feelings, thoughts and experiences of what was happening to her family in her first book, “Just Stand, God’s Faithfulness Never Fails.”

She became inspired to share her story, realizing there are many others who have been victims of devastating circumstances. She believes others can benefit from her experience and the book.

Why: The book signing kicks off her Winter Book Tour throughout the Midwest region.

How: Attendees will be able to personally meet Dr. Burris and have their copies signed. Photo ops will also be available with Dr. Burris and former Senator Attorney Roland Burris.

When: Sunday, December 4th, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Where: Josephine’s Hardtimes Cooking Restaurant, 436 E. 79th Street, Chicago, IL

FYI: “Just Stand, God’s Faithfulness Never Fails,” serves as Dr. Burris’ testimony of God’s faithfulness in good and bad times.
