Authors with Disabilities: Read Harder 2022

    Creator: Daniel Boone Regional Library

    Date Updated: January 9, 2023


    Created by the Daniel Boone Regional Library (DBRL) for the Read Harder event, the library compiled a list of recommended books by authors with disabilities. Representation matters, and highlighting books by persons with lived experiences can help provide that representation for persons with disabilities in the library.

    The information in this resource is summarized from the Authors with Disabilities: Read Harder 2022 DBRL catalogue.
