The Newton Partnership and Understanding Our Differences are honored to be hosting best-selling author Andrew Solomon in Newton on June 17 from 7-9 pm at Newton North High School.
Solomon’s book, Far From the Tree is a magnificent work about extraordinary families of individuals affected by cognitive, physical or psychological differences. Its focus is on parents who not only learn to cope with their exceptional children, but also find profound meaning in doing so. This thought-provoking book affirms the values of empathy and acceptance and is relevant for all kinds of parents and families. Books will be available for purchase and a book signing will follow the event.
