Disability Visibility: First Person Stories from the 21st Century Book Discussion

August 12, 2020 @ 6:00 pm GMT-0500 - 7:00 pm GMT-0500

Join us for a discussion on the book Disability Visibility: First Person Stories from the 21st Century! We are very excited that the editor of the book, Alice Wong, will be joining us!

Please read or listen to the book prior to our discussion. It is available in three formats on Amazon. And come with your questions for Alice!

About the book:

One in five people in the United States lives with a disability. Some disabilities are visible, others less apparent—but all are underrepresented in media and popular culture. Now, just in time for the thirtieth anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, activist Alice Wong brings together this urgent, galvanizing collection of contemporary essays by disabled people.

About Alice Wong:

She is the Founder and Director of the Disability Visibility Project (DVP), an online community dedicated to creating, sharing and amplifying disability media and culture. You can find her on Twitter: @SFdirewolf.
