One of the great things about attending book events are the people you meet and learning about the great organizations out there for the disabled.
At the book reading last week, I met Julie, an organizer for a group called Ability Online, which came out of a concern for disabled youth who are the subject of bullying. Here is a link to their website (which is in the process of getting an overhaul) ...
Julie wants to conduct a text interview with me in the near future, as well as an online chat. In addition I hope to become more involved and attend some events in the upcoming year.
What a great advocacy group!! Thanks Julie for all the positive energy.
