Muncie community unites to tell stories of autism

MUNCIE — “Facing Autism Monologue Event” will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Muncie Civic Theatre Main Stage.

Through a partnership between The Facing Project and Interlock East Central Indiana, 17 stories were collected from the first-person perspectives of moms, dads, caregivers, and those on the autism disorder spectrum. The memories and experiences were compiled into a book titled, “Facing Autism in Muncie.” In addition to the stories, the book provides a directory for all autism resources in the greater Muncie area — including families who are willing to be contacted as an additional support network.

The Facing Autism in Muncie Monologues will feature nine stories from the book, with appearances by Mayor Dennis Tyler, President of Interlock Chad Shelley, co-founders of The Facing Project J.R. Jamison and Kelsey Timmerman, and performances by the Ball State University Prism Project.

This event is free and open to the public.
