The Common Good was honored to have hosted Jenny McCarthy for a breakfast discussion for a meet and greet. She spoke about how raising her son who is autistic and her new books.
Much more than just a pretty face, the quick-witted and often outrageous Jenny McCarthy takes the belief that anyone can be famous to a whole new level. The former Catholic schoolgirl from Chicago simultaneously exploited and spoofed her good looks to launch a diverse career as a model, TV host, actress, screenwriter, and author. When her son Evan was diagnosed with autism, Jenny took on another role again, as an advocate in the fight against autism. Determined to help him and other families living with autism, Jenny’s dynamic life has taken on new meaning.
