You’re Invited to the HumanKind Live Book Reveal with Brad Aronson Apr 21

Posted by Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence on April 21, 2020

Join Author Brad Aronson for a Live Q&A and HumanKind Excerpt Reveal on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 at 7 PM.

Brad Aronson’s life changed in an instant when his wife, Mia, was diagnosed with leukemia. After her diagnosis, Brad spent most of the next two and a half years either by her side as she received treatment or trying to shield their five-year-old son, Jack, from the worst of Mia’s illness. Amid the stress and despair of waiting for the treatment to work, Brad and Mia were met by an outpouring of kindness from friends, family and even complete strangers.

Inspired by the many demonstrations of “humankindness” that supported their family through Mia’s recovery, Brad began writing about the people who rescued his family from that dark time, often with the smallest of gestures. But he didn’t stop there. Knowing that simple acts of kindness transform lives across the globe every day, he sought out these stories and shares some of the best ones in his incredible book.

Brad Aronson is part of our Big Brothers Big Sisters family—our former Board Chair, current Big Brother and Honorary Board member—and is graciously donating all book sale proceeds to us.
