Two Brothers, Autism, and a Journey Toward Understanding

Misfits & Supermen Book Cover

Join journalist and author Steve Starger for a talk on his memoir Misfits & Supermen: Two Brothers' Journey Along the Spectrum.

 

The bond of brotherhood is hard to break, but a lifetime of dealing with familial expectation, bitterness, and psychological disorders can bend and warp it into something nearly unrecognizable.

 

Hear a tale of two brothers: Melvyn, the elder, whose autism and amalgamation of disorders left him completely unable to function within society; and Stephen, the younger, whose own emotional and psychological issues were overshadowed to the point where he became little more than a pale and twisted reflection of his brother.

 

Explore the story of a young man trying to escape from his brother’s psychological disorders who found understanding and closeness instead.

 

This event is free and open to all. Drop in for an exceptional true story.
