NPR and a New Book
This morning I received an email from my youngest daughter. She knows of my interest in autism, and she sent me a link to an article in her American Public Media Newsletter. If you have even the remotest interest in the subject of autism, if you have a family member or friend who is autistic, if you have a young child yourself, I urge you to read this article. It offers a link to a conversation with Paul Collins, who has a young son who is autistic, and who has written a book called Not Even Wrong: Adventures in Autism. No, I have not yet read the book. I will, as soon as I can get my hands on a copy.
I'm sorry that I missed hearing this on National Public Radio, but fortunately my daughter, who has done interviews with authors on NPR, keeps up with their programming, and keeps Mom informed on such things.
Whether or not you want to read the book, whether or not you are seeking further information on the subject, the article is worth reading.
After one week's time, this article will not be the main feature shown when you go through the link. But you will be able to access it through their Archives.
