ADHD books displays at 78 Libraries and book stores throughout 23 cities in the Lower Mainland. Details below.  There will be ADHD books, books by authors who have ADHD on other topics, our ADHD Awareness Week Poster and Brochures on the only 2 ADHD support group in all of BC, My Vancouver Adult ADD Support Group and CHADD Vancouver.

Here are some authors who have gone public with having ADHD (vs someone thinks bob jones may have ADHD) and who have written book on topics other than (or in addition to) ADHD: Rick Riordan, Dave Pikey, Jamie Oliver, Seth Godin, Katherine Ellison, Ty Pennington, Dr. Edward Hallowell, Dr. John Ratey, Dr. Gabor Mate, James Carville, Paul Orfelea, Terry Bradshaw, Michelle Novotni, Zoe Kessler.
