Andrew Solomon Speaks About the Importance of UOD

Far from the tree banner

Acclaimed author Andrew Solomon spoke in Newton on Monday, June 17, 2013, about his book, Far from the Tree. It is a magnificent work about extraordinary families of individuals affected by cognitive, physical or psychological differences. This thought-provoking book affirms the values of empathy and acceptance for people of all abilities, and its themes fit extremely well with UOD’s mission.

We at Understanding Our Differences were thrilled that during his talk, Andrew directly addressed and endorsed the value of our program.
