Antioch residents and co-authors Alicia Coleman-Clark and her daughter Ava J. Clark will sign their three books, “Ava Goes to the Dentist,” “ Ava Goes to the Zoo” and “Ava Goes to the Beach With Friends” at Barnes and Noble in Antioch, on Thursday, April 20th from 3:00 to 7:00 p.m.

Ava Goes to the Beach with Friends CoverAva is a nine-year-old, little girl who has autism. Released last year, “Ava Goes to the Dentist” was her first book on her personal experience. They have since released their second and third books. Autism impacts Ava’s daily life in ways that at times are unimaginable.

The event is a fundraiser to benefit Anova, a school for children with autism and behavioral needs, and which Ava attends.

Alicia and Ava hope that their books and enclosed resources will support other families in their journey. This is an awesome way to wrap up Autism Awareness Month.

Alicia and Ava are proud to share their books with everyone at Barnes and Noble.

“Ava Goes to the Dentist” is a social story from a child’s point of view. Ava was diagnosed with autism at the age of two-and-a-half. The book is the first of a series of books Alicia and Ava have planned, on various outings through the eyes of a child with autism.

Alicia’s philosophy for a life well lived is, to be present in every relationship, live with compassion and practice humility.

Barnes & Noble is located at 5709 Lone Tree Way.
