Video: American Montessori Society Keynote Address

In this speech, Andrew Solomon shares the fruits of his research into Far From the Tree, explaining how he learned from parents of exceptional children that generosity, acceptance, and tolerance can prevail, that love can transcend every prejudice, and that by embracing the differences between us, we expand our definition of what it is to be human. Filmed at the 2014 Annual Conference of the American Montessori Society, Dallas, Texas, March 29, 2014. To learn more about Montessori education, visit
