Three local writers share their stories of living with disabilities in this hour. Writers ONA GRITZ, DANIEL SIMPSON and ANNE KAIER all contributed to the new collection of essays, About Us. We’ll talk with them about how their disability influenced their lives and writing, and about the stereotypes and stigmas around disability that still persist. We’ll also talk to them about working, loving, parenting and aging and about some of the most pressing issues facing disabled communities today.
