Boomer & Me: Jo Case and Melinda Smith

As a new mother, Jo Case tries to work out if accelerated reading skills and an aloofness with other kids mean her child is gifted or just different. A diagnosis of Asperger’s for son Leo turns her world upside down, but also sees her investigating what the similarities she and her family share with Leo might mean. 

Jo will be in conversation with Melinda Smith, PM Literary Award-winning poet, whose collection First… Then..., explores the world of autism - both from the point of view of autistic people, and also that of those who love and care for them.

Join these fearless mothers and writers at Muse as they riff on writing, kids, difference and even humour.

April is Autism Awareness Month
