Andrew Solomon has been chosen to receive the University of Alabama at Birmingham’s 2018 Ireland Distinguished Visiting Scholar Award, given to an intellectual outside of the UAB academic community whose work is groundbreaking and transformational in their field. During their time on campus, awardees give a public lecture and share their knowledge through informal meetings with students and members of the faculty.

Andrew will speak about his book, Far from the Tree: Parents, Children, and the Search for Identity at 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 18th, in UAB’s Hill Student Center Alumni Theatre. A reception will be held after the event, which is free and open to the public.
