Arlene is on the SCENE

Arlene on the scene at Revolution Books

Posted on: December 13, 2010

We had a fantastic time at Revolution Books in New York City!  NTOR’s music poured out onto 26th Street and drew in a crowd as we enjoyed refreshments and good conversation with friends of the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation (HNF) and our new partners in the mission to support people living with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.  Author Carol Liu read from Arlene On the Scene and led a great discussion about disability, difference, and our vision of a greater understanding, appreciation, and embracing of the differences among us.

We were thrilled that the young woman who inspired it all, Grace Caldarone, joined us!  It was great to have the entire Caldarone family there to share in this special event.  We know how tricky it can be to travel to New York with both Marybeth and Grace facing the challenges of CMT, but with help from friends at HNF, Revolution Books, and Vincent Limo, the Caldarones navigated their way to downtown Manhattan.

With so many friends and visitors, we sold out of the entire inventory at Revolution Books!  But don’t worry, they’ve re-stocked and have plenty of signed copies for those who were unable to make it on Saturday.  If you’re a New Yorker, we encourage you to visit Revolution Books at 146 26th Street.  It’s a welcoming and friendly place, great for holiday shopping and stimulating conversation!

We also owe a special thanks to the talented members of NTOR.  Your music rocked, and your energy is contagious!  We hope to work together on future events!

We can’t thank the folks at Revolution Books enough for their hospitality and support.  We also love that they saw in Arlene a revolutionary spirit.  We agree!  We are planning many more bookstore events and school visits to continue to spread Arlene’s message and build support for people living with CMT.

Authors Marybeth Caldarone and Carol Liu, Allison Moore of HNF, and Grace Caldarone
