A Father's Journey with His Wordless Daughter
Robert Rummel-Hudson, Peter Brown, & Kent Haruf
What can we all learn about tenacity and joy from children, even when they're unable to communicate verbally? Robert Rummel-Hudson, whose daughter was diagnosed at age 3 with polymicrogyria, a rare disorder that leaves her unable to speak, will join us this evening to discuss his family's triumphs in the face of an extraordinary challenge. His book is "Schuyler's Monster: A Father's Journey with His Wordless Daughter" (St. Martin's Press, 2008).
Photographer Peter Brown and writer Kent Haruf will join us during the Scene segment to discuss their collaboration on the book "West of Last Chance" (Norton, 2008) and the current gallery show at Photographs Do Not Bend.
Events/Appearances "Peter Brown: West of Last Chance" is on view at the Photographs Do Not bend Gallery until March 22, 2008. More information at www.pdnbgallery.com.
