Best Boy: Monday, July 18 • 6:00 pm
Todd Aaron has lived at a community for those with autism for more than 40 years. His happy adult life is suddenly disrupted by the arrival of a nasty staffer, a difficult new roommate, and a one-eyed resident named Martine who’s crushing on Todd and insists that he’ll feel happier if he goes off his meds. All of which compels him to flee the living center in search of the home he hasn’t seen for decades. This story by Eli Gottlieb will appeal to a broad range of readers.
