Following Ezra by Tom Fields-Meyer

Join J-Reach in Northwest Columbus when author Tim Fields-Meyer comes to speak about his book Following Ezra, a heartwarming, intimate, and amusing memoir of a father’s experience raising his autistic son.

When Tom Fields-Meyer’s son Ezra was three and showing early signs of autism, a therapist suggested that the father needed to grieve. “For what?” he asked. The answer: “For the child he didn’t turn out to be.” That moment helped strengthen the Fields’ resolve to do just the opposite: to love the child Ezra was, a quirky boy with a fascinating and complex mind. Full of tender moments and unexpected humor, Following Ezra is the story of a father and son on a ten-year journey from Ezra’s diagnosis to the dawn of his adolescence. It celebrates his growth from a remote toddler to an extraordinary young man, connected in his own remarkable ways to the world around him.

Tim Fields-Meyer will speak April 24th at 7pm at Congregation Beth Tikvah. Please RSVP by April 17th. To RSVP or for more information contact Becca Nitzberg at (614) 559-6215 or bnitzberg@columbusjcc.org
