Monadnock Ledger-Transcript – Elizabeth Goodhue will speak on behalf of Peterborough Presents

Posted: 05/27/2022 17:15:17

Elizabeth Goodhue will be the next speaker in the Peterborough Presents series on Monday, June 20 at 6:30 p.m. in Room 1833 of the Peterborough Public Library, 2 Concord Street in Peterborough.

For 33 years, Goodhue has championed the cause of her son William, who has Down syndrome. In her book, “The Truth About Down Syndrome: Lessons from Raising a Son with Down Syndrome,” she traces their journey through a maze of social, government, medical and school bureaucracies. Her mission since birth has been to break stereotypes around unique abilities and share her experience with parents, educators, social workers, doctors, administrators and anyone else touched by someone who differs from the norm. .

In 2014, Goodhue quit her 24-year teaching career and moved to Mexico. A year later, she moved to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She began writing during these trips and published her book upon her return to the United States in 2018.

The program is open to the public. It will be in person only and will not be filmed.

Peterborough Public Library has created the Peterborough Presents series to give residents a platform to share their expertise, creative work or knowledge with the public. For more information on the series schedule, visit peterboroughtownlibrary.org/peterboroughpresents.
