We are taking a a bit of a break in our schedule. Due to the interference of homeschooling, particularly, Grade 10 Math, I have had to move things around a bit. Sharon Kirsch has now joined our April line up! This means April is going to be a kick butt bundle of memoir and fiction.
April 11: Sarah Kurchak April 18: Sharon Kirsch April 25: Marissa Stapley
Sarah Kurchak is autistic. “She hasn’t let that get in the way of pursuing her dream to become a writer, or to find love, but she has let it get in the way of being in the same room with someone chewing food loudly, and of cleaning her bathroom sink. In I Overcame My Autism and All I Got Was This Lousy Anxiety Disorder, Kurchak examines the Byzantine steps she took to become “an autistic success story,” how the process almost ruined her life and how she is now trying to recover.” More from Douglas and McIntyre
