Brooklyn By The Book:

Andrew Solomon, author of Far From The Tree, in conversation with Laurie Muchnick, Book Review Editor at Bloomberg News

For ten years, National Book Award winner Andrew Solomon considered what it means to be born “far from the tree,” or to be the parent of a child who doesn’t conform to what society considers normal physically, mentally, sexually or psychologically. The result is a compelling, instructive and deeply moving book hailed as one of the best of the year-and as one of the best ever about the love between parents and their children, in all their myriad configurations. This event is free for CBE members/$10 suggested donation from the public. RSVP by going to http://congregationbethelohim.org/brooklynbythebook
