Add to Calendar 02-02-2012 02-02-2012 15 Meet the Author: "The Anti-Romantic Child: A Story of Unexpected Joy" An evening with Priscilla Gilman, former professor of English literature at Yale and Vassar and the author of "The Anti-Romantic Child: A Story of Unexpected Joy," a memoir about raising a hyperlexic child. It is a poignant and compellingly universal book about family, love, and the relationship between the ideal and the real. Using the poetry of William Wordsworth as a touchstone, Gilman probes the complexity of our expectations and hopes for our children, our families, and ourselves, and affirms that we are all capable of re-imagining our lives and finding joy in the most unexpected circumstances.
