      Writers Minute: Perspective from an Electric Chair

      Mo Gerhardt tells more about his book and his appearance at the NWS.

      In today's Writers Minute, Mo Gerhardt shares the story behind his book "Perspective from an Electric Chair," a play on words and real-life telling of life with physical obstacles. Originally from Traverse City, Gerhardt was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy at age 8 and was told he would be lucky to live into his teen years by doctors.

      However, in 2006 at age 28 his diagnosis was changed to a rarer form of muscular dystrophy called Limb Girdle 2D.

      See the full interview with 7&4's Holly Baker for more on Gerhardt's inspiration story. He will be introducing Mitch Albom at the National Writer's Series event July 2.
