Amy Silverman Will Speak Straight From the Heart Tonight at Tattered

Amy Silverman, managing editor at one of our partner papers,  Phoenix New Times, will be at the Tattered Cover on Colfax tonight, June 17, to talk about a very different publication: My Heart Can’t Even Believe It: A Story of Science, Love, and Down Syndrome, her book about her second daughter, Sophie, published this spring by Woodbine House.

She'll be reading at 7 the bookstore at 2526 East Colfax Avenue (as always, admission is free — but you'll want to buy the book!). And in the meantime, you can read this free excerpt from her book published in Phoenix New Times.
