Authentically Addie Author Celebration: April 10th

The Waco Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities and Cameron Park Zoological & Botanical Society are excited to present an Author Celebration for local author, Stephanie Wolfe, and showcase her book Authentically Addie.

Authentically Addie is a children’s book designed to help families open up conversations about all of our differences. Addie adventures to the Zoo and meets many amazing animals—each of whom are differently abled—while she zooms around in her wheelchair and teaches others about what makes her unique. Author Stephanie Wolfe wrote the book after having experienced many encounters with children and her own daughter, Addie, who was born with a chromosomal translocation. She realized other children did not know how to ask questions about her daughter, so she set out to teach them while giving the spotlight to differently abled individuals in children’s literature.

Come meet the Author, Stephanie Wolfe, her daughter, Addie (yes! Addie in real life!), and their family for a family night at the Cameron Park Zoo in celebration of Authentically Addie! Families will be able to safely socially distance while they explore the Zoo and enjoy a reading of Authentically Addie by the author.

The author will also be signing books, so if you’d like your copy of Authentically Addie signed, please bring your own. You can get one here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/173488567X

Tickets are available for $5.00 each and will be limited to 150 guests. Families with children who are unique & differently abled can contact us at specialevents@cameronparkzoo.com to sign up for tickets sponsored by the Waco Mayor’s Committee for People with Disabilities. Attendees will be able to walk through the African Savannah section of the Zoo and visit our Saltwater Aquarium. We will also be featuring a book reading by Stephanie Wolfe at our special events pavilion. Purchase Tickets
