All Booked Up Reads Alex: the Life of a Child for January


book cover
Frank Deford's title, Alex the Life of a Child, has been selected for discussion on January 8th at 6:30.  Copies of the book are available at the upper level Circulation Desk.

About the Book
Alexandra Deford, a precious and precocious girl, was just eight years old when she died in 1980 following a battle against the debilitating effects of cystic fibrosis, the number-one genetic killer of children. Her poignant and uplifting story touched the hearts of millions when it was first published and then made into a memorable television movie. A new introduction contains information on the latest cystic fibrosis research, and a touching postcript reveals how the Deford family came to terms with the loss of Alex.
