Well, this is exciting!
Jaclyn and Kendra from The Reading Women podcast discussed About Us – the NYT Disability anthology, and also Growing Up African in Australia . They also mention Alice Wong’s Disability Visibility anthology. Their discussion was both kind and critical – talking about who’s included in these anthologies, ams who’s missing.
I wrote for Growing Up African, and am thrilled they mentioned my story! I am especially excited that it was mentioned given the recent racism I experienced within the disability community.
There is a transcript too.
The Reading Women podcast and Instagram has been such a huge supporter of me – thank you! Kenrdra has given me shoutouts on Book Riot – about Growing Up Disabled in Australia and also about Say Hello. And Jaclyn is always lovely to chat to. It’s fantastic that diverse books are being supported on world podwaves. Thank you!
Pre-order Growing Up Disabled in Australia – out in February 2021.
