August 6, 2023 5pm: Virginia Highland Books presents an evening with Meg Zucker, author of Born Extraordinary: Empowering Children with Differences and Disabilities (Penguin Random House March 2023). Meg Zucker was born with one finger on each hand, shortened forearms, and one toe on each misshapen foot, caused by a genetic condition called ectrodactyly. She would eventually pass this condition on to her two sons. In conversation with Ethan Zucker, her oldest son who, along with his brother, shares Meg’s genetic condition, was bullied for being different as a child.
Meg is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison and NYU School of Law and is an attorney and leader in anti-money laundering and financial crimes on Wall Street. She is also the founder and president of Don’t Hide It Flaunt It® (DHIFI), which is a non-profit whose mission is to advance understanding, tolerance, and mutual respect for people’s differences. It provides “flaunt it” Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and anti-bullying programming to public and private schools, universities, community service organizations, and diversity, equity, and inclusion programs at Fortune 500 companies.
A high demand speaker and activist, Meg has been featured on the TODAY show and was the keynote speaker in the Distinguished American Speakers series in Tel Aviv, hosted by the U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Meg’s writing has appeared in the LA Times, Parents Magazine, USA Today, Scholastic Storyworks, The Jewish Forward, The Mighty, Motherwell, and Scary Mommy.
