Until They Have Faces: Stories of Recovery, Resilience, and Redemption is a collection of profile essays about roughly 50 homeless people in Boulder County, complete with portrait photographs by Niwot photographer David Page. Written by 35 local contributors, the profiles detail the lives of local homeless people, their stories and how they got to where they are today. The people profiled range from chronic drug addicts to one-time tech entrepreneurs bankrupted by medical costs. Joy Redstone, the former executive director at Bridge House, will be joined by David Page and Elle Page, who compiled the book. Sales from the book, which is $38, will benefit Boulder Outreach for Homeless Overflow, Bridge House and Boulder Shelter for the Homeless.
