Unrestricted Interest is thrilled to present Ralph James Savarese at the Rain Taxi Book Festival on Saturday, October 13th at 1:30pm. He will be reading from his brand new book, See it Feelingly: Classic Novels, Autistic Readers, and the Schooling of a No-Good English Professor. I absolutely love this book. Ralph's writing somehow manages to be gorgeous, entertaining, and razor sharp all at the same time. This book will change the way people perceive autism, dispelling scores of harmful myths in the process.
You may recognize Ralph from the film Deej, which we co-presented with Rain Taxi and AuSM last winter. The film, which chronicles Ralph's son (and Unrestricted Editions author) DJ Savarese, has since won a Peabody and is up for an Emmy!
In See it Feelingly, you can read more about DJ and several other autistics luminaries, including Tito Mukhopadhyay, Jaime Burke, Dora Raymaker, and Temple Grandin.
We will also have a table at the Book Festival, so send everyone you know down to hear Ralph and buy chapbooks!
