Author of A Will of His Own, Reflections on Parenting a Child with Autism, reads and discusses her book.
Kelly Harland's stories explore her son's life to the age of 14, and the new and unexpected universe she and her husband - both professional musicians - must learn to navigate with him. Will's fears, anxieties and obsessions can dominate daily life, making a trip to the grocery store seem like a walk across a minefield. But amidst these unpredictable flip-outs and freak-outs, there are moments of wonder. When Will finally learns the give and take of conversation or dreams about his future, it rekindles his mother's belief that anything is possible.
