Alta Asks Live: Mary Melton

Can a mom forge a deeper connection with her autistic son — and a divided country — on a 15-day journey along Route 66? Mary Melton, who did just that, joins Alta Asks Live on Wednesday, July 15 at 12:30 p.m. PST. 

Can a mom forge a deeper connection with her autistic son — and a divided country — on a 15-day journey along Route 66? Alta Editor at Large Mary Melton did just that, and wrote about the experience for our Summer 2020 issue. Melton will join Alta Asks Live host Heather Scott Partington to discuss her family’s ambitious road trip, surprising stops along the West’s most iconic stretch of roadway, what to expect from a $58-a-night motel room, and so much more.
