Peter Catapano and Rosemarie Garland-Thomson - About Us: Essays from the New York Times' Disability Series

Upcoming Event
Thursday, September 5, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Honoring the disability movement’s “nothing about us without us” pledge, this collection presents some sixty essays by people living with disabilities ranging from blindness to chronic illness to depression. In pieces such as “Becoming Disabled” and “I Use a Wheelchair. And, Yes, I’m Your Doctor,” these vivid first-hand accounts—drawn from The New York Times’s “Disability” series by Peter Catapano, the paper’s opinion editor, and Rosemarie Garland-Thompson, the Emory professor of English and bioethics whose “Becoming Disabled” inaugurated the ongoing weekly series—powerfully convey the daily challenges of navigating a world made for and by the abled, even as they overturn stereotypes and testify to the resourcefulness and resilience of the members of the world's largest minority group.
