What's Normal?
Kathryn interviews Jonathan Mooney, NY Times best-selling author of “Normal Sucks: How to Live, Learn, and Thrive Outside the Lines.” Diagnosed with dyslexia and ADHD as a kid, Mooney didn't learn to read until he was twelve; he often heard that he was lazy and stupid and would probably end up homeless or in jail. He realized he wasn’t the problem - the educational system and society’s concept of normal were. His work has been featured in the NY Times, LA Times, Chicago Tribune, USA Today, HBO, NPR, ABC News, NY Magazine, Washington Post and the Boston Globe.
