My friend, Amanda McDonough, who is a deaf actor, writer/author, and public speaker joins me on a day out and about in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. We spent part of our day at Bookmarks, a non-profit bookstore, where we looked around for books and things that interested us, including books on disability. We found that we saw only one book about deafness (Helen Keller, to be more specific) and an autobiography written by DeafBlind lawyer, Haben Girma. (Later after, we saw a book on deaf poems but I don’t know much about it.)

This bookstore had a whole section and promotional posters dedicated to diversity in books, but we were disappointed to see that there weren’t disability books included in their diversity. So we decided to sit down and have a short conversation about it.
