We’re Not Broken

Here’s Paul Nussbaum at our recent mini-picnic celebrating his arrival at Bridge of the Gods, where he successfully completed the California and Oregon sections of the Pacific Crest Trail:

On October 21 AASCEND is pleased to welcome autistic author Eric Garcia, in conversation about his acclaimed book on autism, We’re Not Broken (which happens also to feature some AASCEND members and friends). Eric is a writer and reporter based in Washington DC. He has written for the Washington Post Magazine, the Week, the New Republic, the Daily Beast, Spectrum, and more. He has also been an assistant editor at the Washington Post’s Outlook section, associate editor at the Hill, staff writer for Market Watch, National Journal and Roll Call. Eric will talk about themes from his refreshingly thorough and respectful book, and touch on how as an autistic person he parlayed a youthful interest in politics into a career.
