Putting a name on his condition not only helped David Finch deal with Asperger’s Syndrome, it laid the groundwork for a new career and might’ve saved his marriage.
Finch, author of “The Journal of Best Practices: A Memoir of Marriage, Asperger’s Syndrome, and One Man’s Quest to Be a Better Husband,” a sometimes humorous, personal account of his response to his diagnosis, will be in Lexington Wednesday for two events.
Both are open to the public.
He’ll share his experiences at Lexington Middle School at 4 p.m. in an event sponsored by The Center for Counseling & Training, and then at a 6 p.m. meet-and-greet, book signing and informal discussion at The River Reader Bookstore, 1010 Main St. in Lexington.
Theresa Dotson Alexander, a licensed therapist and owner of the counseling center, said that Finch first contacted Patricia Worth, owner of the bookstore, to see if he could do a book signing.
