Far From the Tree

Far From the Tree

In his career defining book, Far From the Tree, Andrew Solomon writes about families coping with deafness, dwarfism, Down syndrome, autism, schizophrenia, and other severe disabilities. While each of these characteristics is potentially isolating, the experience of difference within families is universal, and Solomon join us today on HearSay to share the stories of love and triumph that he documents in every chapter. Later in the show we speak with Dr. L.D. Britt, the first African-American to achieve the position of professor of surgery in the Commonwealth of Virginia, about his ongoing commitment to fostering future generations of minority doctors.
