A Father's Journey with His Wordless Daughter

What can we 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.
