Plymouth Book Club - To Siri with Love

Monday, October 8, 7:00 p.m., in the lounge

Join in the fun when the Plymouth Book Club meets to discuss To Siri with Love by author Judith Newman. Newman never had any illusions that her family was 'normal'. She and her husband keep separate apartments-his filled with twin grand pianos as befits a former opera singer; hers filled with the clutter and chaos of twin adolescent boys conceived late in life. And one of those boys is Gus, her sweet, complicated, autistic 13-year-old. With refreshing honesty, To Siri With Love chronicles one year in the life of Gus and the family around him -- a family with the same crazy ups and downs as any other. And at the heart of the book lies Gus's passionate friendship with Siri, Apple's 'intelligent personal assistant'. Equal parts funny and touching, this is a book that will make your heart brim, and then break it. Warm, wise, and always honest, Newman shows us a new world where artificial intelligence is beginning to meet emotional intelligence -- a world that will shape our children in ways both wonderful and unexpected. This read is GUARNTEED to generate a very interesting discussion. Join us and share your feelings about autism; how understandings and treatments of this condition affect us all. Our books are available on the Book Club Table at Schuler Books with a 20% discount.
