Earlier this month, Jessica Kingsley Publishers returned to The Autism Society’s annual conference. This year we were back on the east coast in downtown Pittsburgh, PA, steps away from the beautiful Allegheny River.
It was an exciting challenge to showcase all of the new titles released since our last appearance. What Is It Like to Be Me?, Flying to See Janet, Letters to the Home Front, and The Early Identification of Autism Spectrum Disorders were just a few of our newest additions.
We were also lucky to have such a strong JKP author presence this year. Jennifer Cook O’Toole joined us on the first day signing copies of her three books; Asperkids, The Asperkid’s (Secret) Book of Social Rules, and her latest release The Asperkid’s Launch Pad. June Groden, author of How Everyone on the Autism Spectrum, Young and Old, can… also stopped by to chat with attendees. New JKP author, Karla Helbert, joined us our last day, signing copies of her book, Finding Your Own Way to Grieve.
During the conference we encouraged attendees to drop their business cards into our bowl for a chance at a free copy of The Complete Guide to Getting a Job for People with Asperger’s Syndrome. We are happy to announce that John Yurgens of Michigan was the winner of this book. Congratulations, John!
