We meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month

  • Explore the difference between Inspirational porn and Disability writing?  
  • What can an author living with a chronic illness or disability teach me?  Lots, they are the experts!
  • Aren't all the books about how to fix my chronic illness or modify my life?  Nope, living with a chronic illness or disability has nothing to do with curing it.  
  • How do I tell my story?  We will discuss how to do this.  
  • Can I meet the authors?  Yes!   Every other month an author will speak with the group.

Get a life, Chloe Brown

In 2017 my disability started interfering with my life in new and unusual ways. I turned to the  experts - authors living with disability - to make sense of my new normal.  


After being told that I was damaged, my husband deserved an award for staying with me, that university was obviously beyond my ability, and being treated as less than a whole and complete person by different organizations and some family members I put on my big girl panties and started reading.  


In books, I reclaimed my worth, saw a different way to understand disability, became my best advocate, and laughed hard at the ridiculous things that occur when you have a disability.


I have Multiple Sclerosis and Alopecia, my body can be very dramatic at times.  Reading was like meeting a friend who also could laugh at what able-bodied people call tragic.
