Fans of Friendship House and "Tales of an Educated Debutante" blogger Adrian Wood turned out Tuesday night to hear her speak at Cape Fear Regional Theatre. The event was a fundraiser for Friendship House, a planned community where medical students will share homes with young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The event also included shopping. Ten women also won the opportunity to eat dinner with Wood at Hilltop House before her speech. Wood, the mother of four, writes about her family, including her youngest son who has autism. She spoke about finding joy in a messy life.
