Bringing ‘Wonder’ to Life with Sam Drazin
March 10, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live with a facial difference and hearing loss? Sam was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, a craniofacial anomalie which is similar to that of Auggie, the main character of this year’s community read, R.J. Palacio’s Wonder. Like Auggie, Sam has undergone multiple surgeries and faced the challenges of adolescence while looking a bit different. Growing up with a facial difference and hearing loss, coupled with his experience as a teacher, Sam will take you on his journey, sharing with you the challenges as well as humor in everyday situations. Sam believes awareness is essential to support children and adults in becoming more aware and accepting of all differences. Made possible by a partnership of the Friends of the Robbins Library and the Friends of Fox Library. Co-sponsored by the Vision 2020 Diversity Task Group and the Arlington Human Rights Commission.
