Find out what what Disability Book Week is, how to get involved, where to find more information!
Disability Book Week, which will take place from April 23-29 each year, is time in which individuals all over the world are invited to become more inclusive with what they read! We encourage everyone to read a book that either features a main character with a disability or is written by and author with a disability.
It is easy! For individuals, pick up a disability inclusive book, and read it. Submit a review of the book, and talk about disability inclusion with your friends and family. For libraries, schools, and bookstores, consider setting up a display of inclusive books or hosting an author with a disability for a reading
We have a team of 12 sensitivity panelists working to review books, and have some recommendations listed below, but keep watching- in April we will put up our comprehensive list of books and featured authors!
Not sure what to say to get your local library or school involved? Check out our resources for a letter of introduction and flyers!
