Reading to Benefit Autism A to Z

logo-a-to-z-mediumI will be reading at a very special autism awareness event on Saturday, April 23, 2016. Called Celebrating Life on the Spectrum, the reading will be hosted by the nonprofit organization Autism A to Z. I will be joined by Bay Area writers Connie Post and Anne K. Ross.

The event will feature poetry and prose dealing with autism spectrum disorder. Marilyn Kammelgarn will read selections from Chicken Soup for the Soul: Raising Kids on the Spectrum, which includes my story, The Most Popular Girl.

Connie Post was the Livermore Poet Laureate from 2005 to 2009, and is the author of Floodwater, When The Sun Drops, and Trip Wires. She hosts the Valona Deli Poetry Series in Crockett, California.

Anne K. Ross is an award-winning writer and school psychologist. She recently published Beyond Rain Man: What One Psychologist Learned Raising A Son on the Autism Spectrum.

The free event will take place on Saturday, April 23, 2016, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at the Bothwell Arts Center, 2466 8th Street in Livermore, California. A book signing will follow the reading. Proceeds from the event will benefit Autism A to Z. To learn more about the organization, go to
