Angela Barnes will share the incredible story of her mother, Janet Barnes, who was born a quadriplegic, yet lived a full and rewarding life. The book “90-pound Heavyweight: The Life and Triumph of Janet Barnes” is based on her diaries, letters, poetry and interviews as well as tributes and recollections from people who knew her well. One reviewer called it the “riveting story of a woman who never gave up and refused to be a victim.” Copies will be available for purchase and signing. All proceeds go to the nonprofit Janet Barnes Legacy Foundation.
During the event will be a Special Preview opportunity to hear the Podcast and see The Faces of Mother–a photo journey Celebrating the Life and Triumph of Janet Barnes.
The next “live program” will be presented in October 2017 in St. Louis.
