About the Show
90 minutes, Oct. 2, 2018.
Part literary salon, part panel discussion, the free event will be an opportunity to discuss disability issues. Four writers and advocates with disabilities from Baltimore, Boston, San Francisco and the Twin Cities will read from their submissions in the anthology, “Firsts: Coming of Age Stories by People with Disabilities.” The stories by authors who experience disability issues are edited by Belo Miguel Cipriani, a writing tutor in Metropolitan State’s Center for Academic Success. “These authors share stories of vulnerability, honesty and courage as they create their own paths to overcome negative assumptions about people with disabilities, held both externally as well as within.” — Emily Smith-Beitiks, associate director of the Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University. The first 75 Metro State students, 10 faculty/staff, and 10 community members to reserve their tickets will be given a free copy of the book. The reading will be followed with light refreshments.
