9/17- 12/17: Online Aphasia Group Series

$ 185.00

The Center for Aphasia Research and Treatment  is offering two 13-week online series for people who have aphasia. You can choose to attend the Book Club, Conversation Group or both! 

Option 1: Book Club 
The book club will discuss Just Mercy (adapted for young adults) by Bryan Stevenson, an acclaimed lawyer and social justice advocate.  He tells the stories of people who are on death row.  Many are wrongfully imprisoned.  Stevenson fights for their freedom.

“Bryan Stevenson is America’s young Nelson Mandela, a brilliant lawyer fighting with courage and conviction to guarantee justice….what hangs in the balance is nothing less than the soul of a great nation.”—Desmond Tutu, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate
