Join Rachael Lucas, and Catherine Simpson as they discuss how their lived experiences of autism informed their books. Rachael is a a best-selling author whose first YA novel The State of Grace tells the story of a teenage girl with Aspergers figuring out where she fits in, and even if she wants to. Catherine's book Truestory follows Sam, who has Aspergers, and his mother Alice as they struggle to make life work on the farm Sam refuses to leave. Rachael - who herself has Aspergers - and Catherine both have experience of raising an autistic daughter and the discussion will be led by Catherine's daughter Nina Mega. This promises to be an event filled with truth, wit and understanding.
