FRIDAY, AUGUST 29 – 7pm
Oblong Books & Music, 6422 Montgomery Street, Rhinebeck – (845)-876-0500
Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome (AS), a mild form of autism, at the age of fourteen, Jesse Saperstein has struggled with many of the hallmark challenges of the condition–from social awkwardness and self-doubt to extreme difficulty in dealing with change and managing emotions.
At this event Jesse will talk about his experiences, and share his struggles, triumphs, flubbs, education, and inspirations on the road to adulthood – learning many lessons the hard way – that are all contained in his new book.
A representative from the Mediation Center of Dutchess County will also be present at this event to talk about the work of the Center and the resources & programs available to individuals and families in our Community.
