Hey all! Last night I had the pleasure of attending the launch for Amanda Leduc‘s new book, Disfigured: On Fairy Tales, Disability, and Making Space. This is the second incredible book about disability that I’ve read lately. The first was the extremely passionate and eye-opening Falling For Myself by Dorothy Ellen Palmer. A must-read, in my opinion. Check out today’s show for our conversation.
Hey all! Hope life’s treating you well. No new news on my end, other than the continued attempt to finish a readable draft.
Despite a busy weekend (an old friend and former bandmate* is getting married) I’m gonna make some time to get out to Brampton, ON this weekend for the FOLD. The Festival of Literary Diversity has a stacked line-up this year so if you want to go hear some amazing writers speak and read, get yourself to Brampton May 2 – 5.
FOLD Communications and Development Coordinator, Hamilton author Amanda Leduc, joins us this week to discuss the festival. Dig!
* Yes I was in a band. We were called five becomes four (yes, all lower case, because ’90s). It was so long ago and we recorded so little that I can’t even link to anything to prove it. The best I could find was this. And that ain’t much.
