Library Donations

A couple weeks ago, Nate stopped in his school library and donated 3 books.  The librarian was thrilled to receive the books, and Nate shared with  her that he was donating them because he knew the authors, and that they stuttered, just like him.

The first book, Stuttering is Cool, is written by Daniele Rossi and is his story of stuttering and advice to others who stutter.  Rossi is very active in the stuttering community -- not only writing this great book, but also hosting a podcast, founding Stutter Social, and presenting workshops at the NSA conferences.   The book is geared towards adults and children.  It includes tons of great comics drawn by Rossi, as well as excellent written information. And, we also think the book is cool because Nate is quoted, and there's an awesome graphic that includes both me & Nate (as well as a bunch of other really cool people!)

The other 2 books are Chicken Soup for the Soul books, that each include an essay by Jody Fuller. He's another great guy we've met thanks to the National Stuttering Association, and an adult who has never let a stutter hold him back from pursuing his dreams.  I think after meeting Jody, Nate realized that there was no reason he couldn't grow up to be a public speaker himself.

You can purchase Jody's books from Amazon: 
Chicken Soup for the Soul: Think Positive for Kids: 101 Stories about Good Decisions, Self-Esteem, and Positive Thinking
 Chicken Soup for the Soul: From Lemons to Lemonade: 101 Positive, Practical, and Powerful Stories about Making the Best of a Bad Situation

*Disclosure: The books were purchased by me at retail cost to donate to the school library.  No considerations involved in this post.  Just sharing some great information about a couple wonderful people.*

  1. Nate has all the charisma in the world and not an ounce of shyness...I can definitely see him as a public speaker.
