Online Book Club

"August 10, 2022, Online Book Cub"Disability Network is pleased to announce the revival of our book club with a new twist. The Disability Network Online Book Club will meet online on the second Wednesday of February, May, August & November.

All books selected for the Online Book Club will have a disability focus and will be available in alternative formats. We will include many genres including fiction, non-fiction and biographical. It is our hope that these books will engage thought-provoking conversation, provide learning opportunities for all, and be a fun way to spend an evening together.

So sit back, get comfortable, and let’s explore the awesome world of written storytelling!

If you have any questions regarding our Online Book Club or need assistance finding the book in alternative format, please follow this link to email Tyler or call him at (269) 345-1516 x122.

Laughing At My Nightmare
By: Shane Burcaw

With sharp wit and a hilarious voice, Shane Burcaw’s Laughing at My Nightmare describes the challenges he faces as a twenty-one-year-old with spinal muscular atrophy. From awkward handshakes to having a girlfriend and everything in between, Shane handles his situation with humor and a “you-only-live-once” perspective on life. While he does talk about everyday issues that are relatable to teens, he also offers an eye-opening perspective on what it is like to have a life threatening disease.
