Program encourages families of the disabled

The author of “Grown Man Now,” and Western Carolina University professor Jane B. Schulz, will speak at a program geared toward encouraging families with members who have disabilities.

The free program is hosted by Pure in Heart and will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 9, in the Fellowship Hall of Longs Chapel United Methodist Church in Lake Junaluska.

Schulz will be accompanied by her son, Billy, a 55 year-old with Down Syndrome. The two will discuss their experience with a disability through slide shows about Billy’s childhood, school, work, church and personal activities and encourage the audience through the debut performance, “Lessons from Billy.” 423.239.0804.
