must read collection of essays on disability by disabled folks

5 stars

a wide-ranging collection of essays from disabled folks about their lives, experience with disability and ableism, and activism. there's variety in the experiences, identities, and topics represented, and I felt the collection is well-edited (notable, because anthologies are hard!). gave me a lot to think about and reflect on.
