LIVE via ZOOM including Q&A with the audience. This event will be recorded and available to watch on BPL's YouTube channel for a limited time.
Most of the stories we hear are from dominant groups. It is only through the writing and telling of stories of marginalized groups that we can challenge the status quo.
Adam Mardero discusses growing up neurodivergent and why, when neurodivergent people stand up and share their stories, we must listen. Mardero shares how he found the courage to start writing about his experiences and where that courage has taken him.
Attendees are invited to email email@example.com with questions for the moderated Q&A before the session starts. Please indicate the session date and title in the email subject line. The author will answer questions as time allows.
