Eve Megargel presents her memoir, Learning to Kiss, that delves beyond the current news headlines to reveal what happens when autism and pain collide. The memoir follows Eve and her family's experiences raising her now 25 year old son who was diagnosed with severe autism at the age of 2 and who is nonverbal. The book highlights the importance of recognizing the potential of those with limited verbal abilities to express themselves and achieve meaningful social relationships, even in the face of constant adversity.
