RSVP for the Book Release Party!

RSVP Today!

Join Dr. Kathy Marshack in celebrating the special 15th anniversary edition of her book “Life with a Partner or Spouse with ‘Asperger Syndrome’ (ASD): Going over the Edge?” on Saturday, August 17th on the beautiful Oregon Coast!

We understand traveling can take a considerable amount of time and effort, so we extend a warm invitation to make your travels worth your while. We hope you can join us for one or all of the events and personalize your trip with some of our helpful tips below.

Bring your books if you want Dr. Marshack to sign them. If you order a digital copy, get your picture with the author! But this party is much more than a celebrity event. This is your chance to meet others who live the NeuroDivergent life. You aren’t alone and we are definitely better together.

There are also many Airbnbs, vacation rentals, and campgrounds nearby!
