PAUL DAUGHERTY DISCUSSES THE BOOK ABOUT HIS DAUGHTER WITH DOWN SYNDROME @ BOOKS & CO

Tuesday April 28 at 7pm

Paul Daugherty will discuss An Uncomplicated Life: A Father’s Memoir of His Exceptional Daughter, on Tuesday April 28 at 7 pm at books&co at The Greene, 4453 Walnut Street, Beavercreek.
Paul and his wife had not expected that their newborn daughter would have Down syndrome. But when they left the hospital they were determined to not let their daughter’s condition change the way they treated her. They would address her special needs, of course, but not to the point that she became needy. “Expect, don’t accept” became their mantra all through her childhood, taking delight in her achievements, whether learning to ride a bike in her early years or later graduating from college.
In An Uncomplicated Life, the parents learn as much about life from the child as the child does from the parent. The author lovingly writes: “Jillian is a soul map of our best intentions” – a model of grace, boundless joy, and love for all of us.
Paul Daugherty is a Cincinnati Enquirer sports columnist.
For an interview, please contact Katie Steinberg at 212-207-7049. For additional event information, please contact Sharon Kelly Roth at 937-429-6302 or rothsk@booksandco.com.
