An afternoon with Cheryl Koenig

To help us celebrate Library Week local author Cheryl Koenig is coming to Sutherland Library.

Cheryl's life changed forever the day that her 12 year old son Jonathan was involved in an horrific car accident, and suffered a traumatic brain injury. Given very little chance of survival, doctors predicted that he would most likely never walk, talk or eat unaided again. Cheryl refused to accept this prognosis and together with her husband Robert set out on a relentless and ultimately successful quest to save their son. Now, 10 years after the accident, Jonathan has defied the odds and lives a fulfilling life.

Paper Cranes by Cheryl KoenigJoin us at Sutherland Library to hear Cheryl talk about this journey in her new book Paper cranes : a mother's story of hope, courage and determination . This book is based around the journal she began whilst staying with her son in hospital. It outlines the search for knowledge in the area of recovery from traumatic brain injury, and describes what enabled them to achieve amazing results.

Unleashed Books Miranda will be making available copies of this book for sale and Cheryl would be happy to sign them.
