Dear Friends,

We are excited to announce that Emma Nadler’s debut memoir The Unlikely Village of Eden is out everywhere today. A moving, funny, and hopeful tale, The Unlikely Village of Eden is a testament to the transformative power of embracing unconventional relationships with our
community, families, and ultimately – ourselves.

Nadler shares her journey of raising her neurodivergent daughter with multiple disabilities and the challenges of shedding cultural expectations related to achievement. A love letter to the unexpected village Nadler’s daughter galvanized, The Unlikely Village of Eden is about redefining family, adapting when life doesn’t go to plan, and creating your own path.

A personal note from Nadler: I wrote The Unlikely Village of Eden because there was nothing like it for me when I needed it most. I hope that it will find its way into the hands of readers who feel alone or surprised by some aspect of their life, who crave a sense of camaraderie during an unexpected time, or who want to laugh and cry and escape into another life for a while. 

The Unlikely Village of Eden is an insightful and wholehearted look at the long-ignored realities many families live with daily. Nadler is a trusted guide who confronts both hope and despair as she gives readers the gift of what it looks like to redefine love, success, family, and community.
