Campus Read 2023-24: Disability Visibility edited by Alice Wong

“To my younger self and all the disabled kids today who can’t imagine their futures. The world is ours, and this is for all of us.” – Alice Wong

What is a disability? What does having a disability mean to the one in five people in the United States who have one or several?

The seventeen eye-opening essays in Disability Visibility, all written by disabled people, offer keen insight into the complex and rich disability experience, examining life’s ableism and inequality, its challenges and losses, its wisdom, passion, and joy.

The accounts in this collection ask readers to think about disabled people not as individuals who need to be “fixed,” but as members of a community with its own history, culture, and movements. They offer diverse perspectives that speak to past, present, and future generations. It is essential reading for all.

Take a look at our Campus Read Guide webpage, presented by the Lake Land College Library, to check out the many fantastic resources available for this book, or download the discussion guide to get started.
