May 11 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

In May we will be discussing the book Sitting Pretty by Rebekah Taussig

Sitting Pretty is a memoir-in-essays from disability advocate Rebekah Taussig as she processes a lifetime of memories to paint a beautiful, nuanced portrait of a body that looks and moves differently than most. Growing up paralyzed during the 90s and early 2000s, Rebekah Taussig only saw disability depicted as something monstrous, inspirational, or angelic — none of this felt right, and as she got older, she longed for more stories that allowed disability to be complex and ordinary, uncomfortable and fine, painful and fulfilling.
