"Book lovers never go to bed alone"
As part of Council’s celebration of International Day of People with Disability, join acclaimed author and speaker Carly Findlay, OAM as she discusses her book Growing up Disabled in Australia, published by Black Inc Books.
Carly is the editor of this rich collection of writing from those negotiating disability in their lives – a group whose voices are not heard often enough.
In Growing Up Disabled in Australia – compiled by writer and appearance activist Carly Findlay OAM – more than forty writers with a disability or chronic illness share their stories, in their own words. The result is illuminating.
Contributors include senator Jordon Steele-John, paralympian Isis Holt, Dion Beasley, Sam Drummond, Astrid Edwards, Sarah Firth, El Gibbs, Eliza Hull, Gayle Kennedy, Carly-Jay Metcalfe, Fiona Murphy, Jessica Walton and many more.
In conversation with Therese Scott from Mosman Library Service.
