Review of A Special Gift

Marcia will discuss a children’s book, that she authored, that tells the story of a boy who loves basketball and ballet, and how he was bullied for dancing ballet. The book was made into an “After School Special” shown on ABC-TV. It won a Peabody Award. (Marcia suspects it may have inspired Billy Elliot, a 2000 British coming-of-age comedy-drama film.)
