Eureka! Book Club
Eureka! Book Club is open to anyone with an interest in reading and conversation. Both January and February will be on zoom. If you are new to participating, give the office your e-mail address so that we can send you a zoom link. Our meeting is still planned for the same date: Tuesday, February 28 at 6:30 p.m. on Zoom, but we are making a shift in our book schedule. The book originally planned for this month will be featured in June. In February, we will read and discuss -- Forever Boy: A Mother’s Memoir of Autism and Finding Joy by Kate Swenson -- An honest and inspiring memoir of motherhood, love and finding joy through autism, from the creator of Finding Cooper's Voice When Kate Swenson's son Cooper was diagnosed with severe, nonverbal autism, her world stopped. She had always dreamed of having the perfect family life--watching her boy play at baseball games, walking him down the aisle. She hadn't signed up for life as a mother raising a child with a disability. At first, Kate experienced the grief of broken dreams. Then she felt the frustration and exhaustion that comes with having to fight for your child in a world that is stacked against them. But through hard work, resilience, and personal growth, she would come to learn that Cooper wasn't the one who needed to change. She was. And it was this transformation that led Kate to acceptance--and ultimately joy.
