2016 Spring Luncheon

The Blue Bird Circle
Change is Good; Watch Us Grow!

Thursday, April 14, 2016
Houston Country Club

Guest Speaker: Ron Suskind
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, best-selling author of Life, Animated – A Story of Sidekicks, Heroes, and Autism and contributing writer for national magazines

Ron Suskind is a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and best-selling author of Life, Animated, the story of the Suskind family’s 20-year struggle with their son Owen, and his diagnosis of regressive autism. Suskind not only covers the neurological disorder, but he shows us human redemption at its core. It is a story of a new kind of family, as the question of imagination having the ability to save a person’s life is answered. Owen, incapable of connecting with the world, finds his voice through the power of old Disney movies, myth, fable and legend.

From 1990 to 2000, Suskind was a reporter and senior national affairs writer for The Wall Street Journal. He is also involved in journalistic projects for television and writes for national magazines, including Esquire and The New York Times. He taught journalism at Harvard University and is currently the Senior Fellow at Harvard University’s Edmond J. Safra Center for Ethics.

Suskind’s latest bestseller is Confidence Men: Wall Street, Washington, and the Education of a President.
