We are excited to announce the arrival of a new book that brings together poetry, short prose, and visual art created by people with disabilities. The editorial team composed of members of DEAN received more than 260 submissions! In the end, and after some difficult decisions, we were able to include about 36% of total submissions in the book. 50 authors – 25 women and 25 men – are represented in: (Dis)Integration: Buffalo Poets, Writers, and Artists 2017.
Please join us for the first of what will be several events to promote our new book! We will be gathering at 5 PM – 7 PM at Starlight Studio for a happy hour launch party on Friday, November 3. Free refreshments will be served and some of the authors will be reading their work! All contributing authors will receive a free copy of the book.
The editorial team would like to thank the following for making this book possible: Starlight Studio and Art Gallery, People Inc., UB Center for Disability Studies, and of course the DEAN of Western New York.
We hope to see everyone there! Please see the attached poster for more details. Please help to spread the word about this exciting book and the November launch party!
Copies of the book will be made available for sale at the event and through DEAN for $20 per copy.
