Ron Suskind, Autism Affinity Therapy and his new book Life, Animated

The interview with Ron Suskind last night was fantastic! Suskind has written a book, Life, Animated: A Story of Sidekicks, Heros and Autism, about his son, Owen. Owen is autistic, but has found a way to communicate using lines from Disney movies - his particular affinity. But an autistic child's affinity could be anything: wind chimes, maps, comics.

Suskind and his wife, Cordelia, have started the Autism Affinities Project to help other families find their child's affinity and communicate.

The extended interview is ABSOLUTELY worth the watch.

Help Celebrate My Birthday with a Donation to charity:water

Charitywater_vertical_blackHi! My name is Kate and I maintain this list of books. Thank you for visiting! I hope you've been able to add a lot of great books to your reading list!

If you find this list valuable and would like to provide a little karmic thanks, I have a thought. November is my birthday month and I'm running a campaign over at charity:water. I'm turning 45 this year and I'm trying to raise enough money to get clean water for 45 people.

Take a quick look. If we were ever to meet up on the street and you would say, "Kate, I really love that list of books from The Daily Show that you put together! Let me buy you a latte." well maybe you would consider sending that money to my #LikeWaterForKate charity:water campaign instead.

If you do make a donation, it can totally be anonymous, but if you could add a note in comment field that said you got there because of the Daily Show Book List, that would be awesome!

Thanks so much and have a great day!

Book on Autism that was promoted on The Daily Show

Reason-i-jumpHello, everyone! I was on holidays for a couple of weeks, so I was a bit behind on updating my list. And wouldn't you know it, a book that REALLY picqued a lot of interest was on The Daily Show last week.

If you're looking for the book on autism, it's called The Reason I Jump: The Inner Voice of a Thirteen-Year-Old Boy with Autism. It was written by by Naoki Higashida and translated by David Mitchell who was a guest on the show.

Donate to Hurricane Sandy relief organization binifund.org

On last week's show, Jon mentioned an organization that he and The Daily Show support for relief efforts for Hurricane Sandy - the Carl V. Bini Memorial Fund. They have created the grassroots organization Staten Island Strong that is dedicated to the cleanup and restructuring of the homes devastated by Hurricane Sandy. If you are in the area, they post regular updates on their Facebook page about supply needs and cleanup efforts. And if you're not in the area they are taking donations.

Jon Stewart Helps Clean Up Staten Island

This Thanksgiving, I am so lucky and so thankful. I have a warm cozy home and know that my family is safe and sound. I wish all the best to the people of the East Coast this Thanksgiving as they try to recover and rebuld.
