Ketchup Is My Favorite Vegetable: A Family Grows Up With Autism
Author Talk with Liane Kupferberg Carter

How do you create an ordinary family life while dealing with the extraordinary needs of an autistic child? Meet Mickey: charming, funny, compassionate, and autistic. In this unflinching portrait of family life, Liane Carter offers a mother's insight into what really goes on in the two decades after diagnosis. From the double-blow of a subsequent epilepsy diagnosis to bullying and bar mitzvahs, Mickey's struggles and triumphs along the road to adulthood are honestly detailed to show how one family learned to grow and thrive with autism.

Tickets: $11/ $8 members, 65+, under 30
