We are pleased to announce that Andrew Solomon, the award-winning author of Far From the Tree: Parents, Children & the Search for Identity and The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression, will be the keynote speaker at the October 15, 2014 Disability Awareness Workshop. Each October this workshop is co-sponsored by the Department of Family Studies and Community Development, Disability Support Services and the College of Liberal Arts. The goals of the workshop are to raise student awareness and understanding of individuals with disabilities and to eliminate negative stigmas and stereotypes associated with disabilities. In addition to speaking at the workshop, Andrew will be the guest speaker at a noon book talk on October 15. Following are more details about these two engaging events:
