This is definitely the 'best deal' in Boca. Where else can you go on a Sunday afternoon, for a $5.00 Donation (tax deduction) have coffee and a choice of 8 different bakery cookies/cakes, meet 8 local authors and learn about them and their books, and then see the movie, 'Temple Grandin' with a lively discussion afterwards, led by Moderator Barbara M. Wolk?

Barbara made a heroic effort to create this event, "My Author Is My Hero" Day in order to promote AUTISM AWARENESS, via books and the special movie about 'Temple Grandin, PhD." This was an educational charitable event which hopefully, will lead to many more similar events. "Boca Raton Walk On Water Fund" (www.awalkonwater.com)
