12/16/13 - Monday’s Topical Currents is with writer and lecturer Andrew Solomon.  His latest book, FAR FROM THE TREE:  Parents, Children and the Search for Identity tells the stories of parents who deal with their exceptional children . . . and find profound meaning doing so.  Families cope with deafness, dwarfism, autism, schizophrenia, children conceived in rape, kids who become criminals and transgendered individuals. Solomon tells how diversity makes parents more imaginative and understanding.  Don’t miss Topical Currents Monday at 1pm.
