Award winning author Andrew Solomon will speak at the University of Wyoming on Wednesday, April 22, about his book "Far From the Tree" where he presents stories from parents who have raised children in a variety of circumstances. Some are gay, some have schizophrenia, some are dwarfs, some have autism, others are profound.

Solomon interviewed these parents and others about the challenges of raising these children and how love prevails. He says diversity unites us all. Solomon says writing the book also helped him become a better parent. He explains to Wyoming Public Radio’s Bob Beck why he embarked on the book.
