Author Talk: Amy S.F. Lutz, We Walk…Life with Severe Autism (on Zoom)
Wednesday, February 17, 7pm-8pm

Featuring Amy S.F. Lutz, writer, parent advocate, and historian of medicine

Join us for an inspiring talk by author Amy S.F. Lutz on her memoir about autism. In We Walk, Amy combines personal narrative, interviews, and research in philosophy, psychology, and sociology to examine social issues such as inclusion, therapeutics, and religion through the lens of her son Jonah. In a time when public perception of autism is shaped largely by “quirky geniuses” featured on television shows (Big Bang Theory, The Good Doctor), her book insists that public debates about this disorder spotlight those who are most impacted by it. Ms. Lutz’ book may be purchased at our local independent bookstore, Scrawl Books at: https://www.scrawlbooks.com/search/site/amy%20s.f.%20lutz
