Noëlle Gentile will be signing her book Isla and Lulu.
Beautifully illustrated and artfully told, Isla and Lulu aims to create a more loving and inclusive world for children with special needs, children who are medically fragile, and their families. Isla is on the autism spectrum and has epilepsy; the story is told from the perspective of her four-year-old sister Lulu. Gentile brings a mother’s love and concern for both of her children to this beautiful book, which offers the opportunity for young readers to have meaningful conversations about those who experience the world differently.
Noëlle Gentile is a director, producer, writer and artist educator, who seeks to create spaces for people to tell their stories through writing, film and theater as a vehicle for transformation, healing and connection. She lives in upstate New York with her family.
