And just a week before the show’s return, you can pick up “Switched At Birth” by Kathryn Kennish (played by Lea Thompson) at the book store!
Available at online retailers on August 28th, the book is the inside story of the “Switched at Birth” family as only a mother could tell it.
In her memoir, Kathryn reveals the surprising and intimate layers of her story-from the private details of the switched-at-birth revelation to all that occurs in its aftermath, including Regina and Daphne’s move into the Kennish household. In the wake of this immense shift, secrets and previously unexamined issues from Kathryn’s and her family’s past surface as they are forced to reexamine everything they assumed about what makes a family a family. The book, like the show, touches on themes that any family who has ever felt different or “not normal” will recognize and appreciate.
