We invite you to join author Patricia Horvath for an important discussion about 'self-identity' and how our views of beauty, success, and potential are influenced by experiences, imagery and in particular, literary representaions of individuals with physical disabilities.
This luncheon will include a reading from Horvath's acclaimed All the Difference, and will provide some background on the genesis of the book. Patti will examine the how differently-abled bodies have been depicted in literature and some of the challenges she has dealt with in overcomnig biases and perceptions resulting from those depictions. Guests are invited to a book signing immediately following the luncheon, and may purchase advance copies HERE.
