Image result for you'll like it here bookEnjoy a reading and discussion with local author Ed Orzechowski and Donald Vitkus as they discuss Orzechowski's book, You’ll Like it Here: Donald Vitkus - Belchertown Patient #3394.

The book describes the life of Donald Vitkus, who was born during World War II and given up to the state when he was just 27 days old. At age 3, he was misdiagnosed with an IQ of 41 and clinically labeled a "moron." He then landed in Belchertown State School at age 6. This is a story of the resiliency of the human spirit. (Belchertown State School was closed in 1992 following a federal class-action lawsuit.)
