With empathy and humor, Patty and Gina share stories and insights gleaned from their journey as parents of children with disabilities.

When:   
6:30pm Wednesday, December 11
Where:  Cambridge Rindge and Latin School
                    459 Broadway, Cambridge, MA

Childcare and snacks provided. For more information, please email rrippey@cpsd.us, or call 617-593-4402.

In 2006, the sisters co-authored a parenting book which highlights the humorous, heartwarming side of raising special children in a perfection obsessed society. The book, Shut Up About Your Perfect Kid, was published by Random House and a new edition was released in August, 2010.
