A Monster Book Gets Its Due
In early December, we mentioned the then-impending publication of Robert Rummel-Hudson's book Schuyler's Monster: A Father's Journey with His Wordless Daughter. Since then, the University of Texas at Arlington architecture communication coordinator has been popping up in plenty of places -- as has his daughter Schuyler, who's finding the words, slowly but surely, with which to tell her own remarkable story.
Over the weekend, Robert, his wife Julie and Schuyler were featured on American Public Media's Weekend America: The story can be read and heard here, and Rummel-Hudson has outtakes from the interview at his own tremendous Web site, Fighting Monsters with Rubber Swords. Also featured on the site: the book's three-and-a-half-star review in the latest issue of -- no, really -- People. For those who'd like to celebrate the book with the Plano-based writer, he'll be signing copies of his astounding tome at the Barnes & Noble on Cooper in Arlington this Saturday, beginning at 2 p.m., followed by appearances in Houston, Austin and San Antonio with more to come, no doubt. --Robert Wilonsky
