Pretty Amazing: Two Disabled Activist Memoirs

By Sonya Huber: For More Info, Go Here…

It might seem like a coincidence: two books released in the same season with “pretty” in the title by disability activists. But the reasons are far more than skin deep.

Both Keah Brown and Nadia LaSpina write against the incorrect and cruel assumption that a disabled life is not a full, vibrant, and beautiful life. Both Brown and LaSpina vocally resist being, as Brown writes, “anyone’s worst-case scenario.”

ngd- excellent essay…
