Author, "Far From the Tree: Parents, Children and the Search for Identity."
Tuesday, March 21, 8 am
Acclaimed as a revolutionary feat of journalism, ``Far From the Tree: Parents, Children & and the Search for Identity'', is an examination of the means by which families accommodate children with physical, mental and social disabilities and how these unusual situations can be invested with love. Andrew spent ten years researching the book, interviewing more than 300 families and generating more than 40,000 pages of notes! NPR called the book "a work of genius" and Vanity Fair said, "Andrew Solomon's empathy, heart, and vast intelligence are in abundance in Far from the Tree." "One of the many virtues of Mr. Solomon's work -- perhaps its most important virtue -- is its fearlessness." --The New York Times

The Wednesday Night Party: Club Superhero
Wednesday, March 22, 8 -11 pm
Sacramento Masonic Temple
Let's face it, the Wednesday Night Party at the California Charter Schools Conference may be the most fun you have all year. This year we will be at the Sacramento Masonic Temple. You can either relax in the lounge or dance the night away. We're calling it Club Superhero because we are encouraging attendees to come in costume as their favorite superhero. You don't have to dress up, but if you do you will be eligible for our costume contest. There will be prizes for best individual costume, best duo and best group costume.
Outstanding Breakout Sessions
We have more than 160 breakout sessions on our schedule focused on the issues most important to our schools. Below are just a few of the session on our schedule:
Special Education Summit
We will also have a Teacher Expo, a Facilities & Funding Expo, an Operations & Compliance Expo and a Blended Learning/Tech/STEM Expo.
Please think again about joining us March 20-23, 2017 in Sacramento. We hope to see you there.
Thank you, The Conference Team
