Feb. 24 Coming to Omaha: Father Greg Boyle Lecture and Book Signing Metro Community College South Omaha Campus S. 27th Street and Q, 889.8410 7 p.m., FREE Pastor and author Father Gregory Boyle will be in Omaha next Thursday to give a lecture at Metro Community College’s South Campus. For 20 years, Boyle has led an organization called Homeboy Industries that works to provide jobs, training and encouragement for troubled young people in a neighborhood of Los Angeles known to have the city’s highest concentration of murderous gang activity. Recently, he penned Tattoos on the Heart, a memoir recollecting his experiences. Boyle’s tales from the barrio include everything from a tattooed gang member readjusting to life after prison to a 10-year-old girl searching for acknowledgement in her troubled neighborhood. A book signing follows the 7 p.m. lecture.
