Arlene is on the SCENE

Archive for the ‘Coming Events’ Category

Well, we got off to a great start on our week-long visit to schools in Rhode Island, spreading Arlene’s message as far and wide as possible.  We kicked the week off at the school of the girl who inspired the book, Grace Caldarone.  A big shout-out to all our new friends at Monsignor Clarke School!

Next we visited West Kingston Elementary–we loved seeing you all!  Chariho Middle School–all 500 of you–glad we could talk, even if it was 8:30 in the morning for some of you!  And to our friends at Hope Valley, thanks for all your great comments about the book.  We loved that you loved it!

And thanks to Wakefield Books for hosting a great book-signing.  We talked to a lot of our new friends that we met the past two days and continued to spread the word about the need to raise awareness of CMT.   If you missed us today, we left behind signed copies at the store, and they are the rare ones with BOTH authors’ signatures.  We’re not often in the same place, so grab one of those while they last!

We’re off to Warwick tomorrow, Providence Thursday, and Coventry Friday.  And we’ll be at Symposium Books in East Greenwich on Friday from 3:30 to 5:00 if you’re in the area!


We’re so excited to be holding our next book event in the Big Apple!  It’s a great time to be in New York City, so if you’re in the area, please join the fun!

We’ll be talking about Arlene On the Scene with young readers and their families at Revolution Books on Saturday, December 11th, from 3-5 pm. Revolution Books is located at 146 West 26th Street (between 6th and 7th Ave), 212-691-3345.  We’ll also be joined by the awesome band, NTOR, an amazing group of eighth graders who play a wide range of music from rock to punk to electro-pop.

Everything benefits the Hereditary Neuropathy Foundation, a wonderful organization that funds cutting-edge CMT research and works tirelessly to support people living with CMT and their families.

Hope to see you there!

We hope to see our local friends at the Borders store in the White Flint Mall on Saturday, November 20th, at 2 pm. (That’s at 1301 Rockville Pike–you know, where the Dave and Busters is!)

I’ll be talking about the book and the personal story behind why I wrote it. We’ll learn a bit about Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and talk about what it’s like to grow up different, with a disability. And I’ll be signing books for everyone. This is a family event for sure–the more kids the better!

Hope to see you there!
