"A Shout-Out for Dyslexics" Book Event with Author Gina Mazzetti, June 22nd at Florey's!

Florey's Books welcomes local author Gina Mazzetti as she discusses her new book: "A Shout-Out for Dyslexics: The Emotional Side".

***Sunday, June 22nd, 2-4pm***

About the Book:

Dyslexia has affected many generations of Gina's family. After analyzing the experiences and learning patterns of her grandmother and several other family members, Gina has discovered ways to survive this disability. This book looks at the symptoms, behaviors, and effects of dyslexia and is handy for those experiencing this disability. However, it is also most helpful for anyone who parents, teaches, or is in a relationship with a dyslexic. With this work, Gina hopes to motivate and enlighten readers about this disability. Gina's stories give the reader insight into how dyslexics feel as they face their many challenges and as they struggle to love and accept themselves. The book unpacks the emotional trauma faced by dyslexics and provides suggestions for ways they can achieve and excel in their lives. Gina urges dyslexics to release their negative energy, let go of the limits they once felt, and create a life of fulfillment and success.

She currently speaks to parents, teachers, and students about her experiences living with dyslexia. She is an advocate for all people who struggle with the disability.
