Daniel Perron -- Book Launch

Launch of Dancing Gabe: One Step at a Time.

He was born in 1963, diagnosed with autism at the age of three, institutionalized at six, and non-verbal until he was ten. He moved back home at eleven, graduated from high school seven years later, and eventually became one of the most recognized and adored figures in a city of almost a million people.

In One Step at a Time, Daniel Perron takes us on a fifty-two year journey, up-close and personal, with Gabe Langlois, his mother Angélina, his family, the many friends, medical professionals, foster parents, and media and sports figures who influenced his life. This book is a unique collage of interviews, excerpts from Gabe’s own scribbler, family photos and recent action shots.

Hear the music, feel his passion, and dare to get up and groove with Dancing Gabe.

Daniel Perron’s career includes nineteen years as a Canadian Forces air navigator and twenty years in management and consulting. With Dancing Gabe—his first published book—he has brought together his skills and passions in research, investigation, analysis, writing, and photography. Born in La Prairie, Québec, he moved to Winnipeg in 1990. He and his wife Elaine are parents of two adult children.
