Month of Military Child Celebration Video Now Online
AUSA Family Programs held a celebration in honor of the Month of the Military Child. The speaker series featured Shannon Maxwell, author of Big Boss Brain and Our Daddy is Invincible, and Dorinda Silver Williams, author of Sparrow and other publications. Maxwell and Williams presented on the growing need for ways to reach out to youth who have been impacted or affected by a parent or loved one’s visible and invisible wounds of war, and the ways their books work to meet those needs. We are thankful to all who attended, and send special thanks to the Wounded Warrior Project for their generous donation of copies of Big Boss Brain for the event. Watch the video below.
