Meet the Author John McCarthy: Maggie's Angels: Loving, Living with, and Learning from a Special Needs Daughter at Tippecanoe

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 - 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Categories: Author/Storyteller

Join John McCarthy (Maggie's dad) on a journey to discover the wonders, joys, challenges, and heartaches of living, loving, and learning from a daughter with an intellectual disability. Along the way you'll experience the depths of unconditional love and the healing power of art and music. Along with memorable moments with Maggie, McCarthy spotlights the inspiring stories of some 60 other people with special needs-artists and musicians to Special Olympians-their parents, coaches and teachers, who've become "angels" in his family's lives. Founder of McCarthy Grittinger Financial Group, McCarthy also gives advice in the book on preparing for the long-term care of adults with special needs, using specially designed financial and estate plans.
