Author talk with Jane Roper – cancelled

UPDATE: Thursday July 5

Earlier this week we received the sad news that one of author Jane Roper’s daughters was diagnosed with leukemia. As we all guessed on hearing this news, Jane won’t be able to join us at the ACL on the evening of Tuesday, July 10th. Hopefully we will be able to reschedule this event at some future point. You can read Jane’s comments about this difficult week at her web site.

Thanks for helping us get the word out, Your Friends at the ACL

On Tuesday, July 10 7:30pm Jane will be at the Auburndale Community Library to share some of her humorous, honest, and thought provoking, stories from her new book Double Time: How I Survived — and Mostly Thrived — Through the First Three Years of Mothering Twins.

Since 2007, Jane has been baring her soul for the world (on her blog), and now she lets us into the nitty gritty details of raising twins with a fantastic new book that will speak to all mothers…No issue is off limits, and this is what makes it so endearing. It’s as if you are sharing agood laugh with an old friend–with a few of those old friend tears flowing in between.” –Cool Mom Picks

The San Francisco Chronicle explained why this is not just a book for parents of twins… “It would be a shame to see Double Time relegated tothe “twin” section of parenting books, because much of it speaks to the anxieties of anyone with multiple children: How do I foster their individuality? How do I stop comparing them? What happens when some days I feel more connected with one than the other” “Readable, relatable, and genuinely funny”

This will be a great chance to socialize with other local parents of young children!
