FLORA PUBLIC LIBRARY
TO HOST  LOCAL AUTHOR
ANGELA CONRAD

Saturday, September 3, 2016
12:00 – 3:00pm

Flora Public Library will host a book signing by local author, Angela Conrad, on Saturday, September 3, from 12:00-3:00pm.  Angela, who has Flora ties, will be signing her book, “Two Brothers, One Journey:  the Loving, Lonely Struggles of an Autism Mom”.  She is the daughter of Jim and Aleta Tackitt and niece of Bob and Barb Tackitt. 

Angela Conrad’s two young sons, Andrew and Trenton, have both been diagnosed with autism, wrecking any chance she can have a normal family life. Every day Angela has a mountain to climb 24/7, just to get somewhere close to keeping her children safe and happy and keep her house from looking like a war zone.  This is her story of how she has battled the effects of a life-changing condition and learned how to handle an insensitive world.   The book is a moving, inspiring read for all those whose lives are touched by autism.

“Everyone deals with storms in their life. The storm I live every day isn’t an easy storm by any means, but it could be worse. Nonetheless, it is my storm. I own it and I will make the most of it. Dance in your storm!”

Angela is a former special education teacher turned autism mom for her two sons. She is a freelance writer for Autismawareness.com, Autism Parenting Magazine, Her View From Home, & The Mighty. She is the lead volunteer leader for Autism Speaks in Terre Haute, Indiana and dedicates every day to raising awareness and educating the world on autism.  Angela’s strong faith in God is what gets her through the daily struggles of autism.  She is a celebrated speaker in the area of autism and special needs. “I truly believe we all have a purpose in life. Mine was to raise two boys with autism and to make an impact in the world of autism!  It’s not how I would have planned my life but God knows what is best!  I will praise his glory till the day I die for giving me my two angels :)”
