The theme for Ann Arbor Ypsilanti Reads 2011 is 'What Makes Life Worth Living?'. Joan Broggi demonstrates how FAMILY makes life worth living. Her son, Alex, has epilepsy and has experienced numerous grand mal seizures throughout his 19 years. But his innate wisdom has taught his family, friends, and educators invaluable life lessons.

The impact Alex has had on other people's lives has been remarkable. Joan realized the breadth of Alex's impact when she experienced the love and joy bestowed upon him at his high school graduation. This outpouring of affection led Joan to put pen to paper and write 'Bursting with Joy - Discovering Universal Truths Through Our Special Son.' A book signing will occur at this event and books will be on sale.
