ABC Family went all out to celebrate their hit show Switched at Birth and the launch of the accompanying book, Switched at Birth: The True Story of a Mother’s Journey at the Redbury in Hollywood on Thursday.

Switched at Birth, currently in its first season on ABC Family focuses on two families whose daughters were sent home from the hospital with other families at birth. The twist, one of these daughters, Daphne (Katie LeClerc) is deaf.

This groundbreaking show also features scenes shot entirely in American Sign Language and explores the deaf culture with many deaf and hard-of-hearing actors.

The series also stars Lea Thompson, Vanessa Marano, Lucas Grabeel, Constance Marie, D.W. Moffett, Marlee Matlin and Gilles Marini.

So what’s their new book all about?

The book, written by Thompson’s character Kathryn Kennish, furthers the series by detailing the inside story of her experiences as a mom of her child who was switched at birth from the big reveal of the switch to the aftermath.

It reexamines her family in the wake of Daphne and Regina’s (Marie) move into the Kennish household. Carrying a theme of acceptance for differences, it is a must read for any fan.

Not only is the book available in stores, but it’s also a key plot point as the show continues Season 1C.

Coming up next on Switched at Birth, Kathryn will become upset when Regina gets all the attention for her book. Meanwhile, Daphne will bond with her boss even though she felt like she was going to be fired. Bay will also try to evade John’s (Moffett) rules by using Angelo (Marini).
