John Elder Robison - Raising Cubby: A Father and Son’s Adventures with Asperger’s, Trains, Tractors, and High Explosives
Start: 7:30 pm
Historic LoDo: Diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome at the age of forty, John Elder Robison, the author of Look Me in the Eye, approached fatherhood as a series of logic puzzles and practical jokes. Robison will discuss and sign his new book Raising Cubby: A Father and Son’s Adventures with Asperger’s, Trains, Tractors, and High Explosives (Crown). This slyly funny, sweetly moving memoir of an unconventional dad’s relationship with his equally offbeat son is complete with fast cars, tall tales, homemade explosives, and a whole lot of fun and trouble.
