When Amy Julia Becker launched her new book, White Picket Fences, in Richmond, Virginia, I was there – and what a speech and conversation! After summarizing her early life as a white, privileged girl that continued into adulthood, the audience asked questions which Amy Julia answered with honesty and acceptance of reality.
Visit Amy Julia’s about page on her website where you will learn of her accomplishments and struggles. In her books, and in articles for well-known media, you can piece together Amy Julia’s contributions to social causes, one of which is Down syndrome. Penny, her first child, has the condition. Amy Julia’s Penny-inspired book, A Good and Perfect Gift, and the rest of the Becker family happenings (with pictures!) are also featured on the site. It’s very engaging. 🙂
I love a book cover postcard! Thank you, Amy Julia, for gifting me with yours. My collection is growing. 🙂
