Join us for a book discussion with resident Sarah Howell. Her book Ringo’s Gift is an inspirational story of growing up in the ’50s with cerebral palsy and her bond with a horse named Ringo who helped her build strength and face life’s challenges head-on.
Born in 1948 with cerebral palsy, public schools weren’t as open to disabled children as they are today. So Sarah was sent to a private boarding school, a terribly harsh environment. But as a child, she embraced nature and easily made friends with a number of animals, including a horse named Ringo.
Ringo remained in Sarah’s life for thirty years and his devotion and unconditional love helped her learn to help herself and others.
“Ringo’s Gift is an inspirational story… it is not about ‘overcoming’ a disability, but about accepting what life deals out, facing it head-on, and building strength, courage and success on love and relationship…”
