Summer Reading List: Stephen

The CCA Blog Contributors are creating lists of their top recommendations for a "Summer Reading List." So get your library cards out and pack your beach tote -- we're checking out some of our favorite reads this summer!

Stephen recommends:

The Story of My Life by Helen Keller

I recommend this autobiography because it is so genuine and inspiring...Helen went through such extreme challenges and the emotions the book invokes are very powerful and are very familiar to anyone facing life's challenges including those living with craniofacial issues. 

Charlotte's Web by E. B. White

This book is great because everyone needs a Charlotte the Spider in their life to make it through having craniofacial issues.  I have had many many Charlottes throughout all stages of my life who have supported me emotionally and spiritually.  The book also emphasizes how important it is to develop a sense of community and to help others...we are all in the same boat and need each other to thrive in this world.

A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle

Changing the way we think completely changes the quality of our lives.  We can change ourselves (and spend that energy enriching our own lives rather than trying to change everyone on the outside).  I wish I had found this book or had these principles and skills taught to me decades ago.

Thinking about buying the books instead of renting? Order online via and CCA will receive a portion of the sales!
