Dan, son of Nancy(library director) and Roger Digmann, and his wife Jennifer will be here to talk about their lives with 2 different forms of MS (multiple sclerosis).

In 2011, Dan and Jennifer published the book "Despite MS, to spite MS" a compilation of their heartfelt essays, accented by haiku-style poems by Judy Williams.

Jennifer and Dan both have Multiple Sclerosis, and combined, they have taken on this chronic disease of the central nervous system for nearly 25 years. Jennifer was diagnosed in 1997; Dan was diagnosed in 2000. She has secondary-progressive MS. His is relapsing-remitting. Through their writing, public speaking and advocacy work, the Digmanns have inspired countless friends, colleagues and perfect strangers with their amazing love story and passion for life.

Join us for some readings from their book and a question and answer session with Dan and Jennifer.  They will sign copies of their book and will have copies available for purchase that day.  Portions of the book proceeds will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Camp Courageous.
