Book Group – Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8

Sun, Feb 11, 2018 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Board Room (Biddle)

The UCV Second Sunday Book Group meets next on February 11th to discuss Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8. Author Naoki Higashida is, by any measure, a phenomenally successful author. He is also profoundly autistic. His observations are moving and thought-provoking: 

—- “I’d like people to stop pressuring children to make friends … having no friends is nothing to be ashamed of. Let’s all follow and be true to our singular path through life.” —- 

—- “Those who are determined to live with us and not give up on us are deeply compassionate people, and this kind of compassion must be a key to humanity’s long-term survival.” —- 

We meet in Biddle from 12:30 – 2 pm and all are welcome. Facilitator: Rob Dainow 604-5230123.
