Growing Up Disabled in Australia

Growing Up Disabled in Australia


One in five Australians has a disability. And disability presents itself in many ways. Yet disabled people are still underrepresented in the media and in literature.

Growing Up Disabled in Australia is the fifth book in the highly acclaimed, bestselling Growing Up series. Edited by award-winning writer, speaker and appearance activist, Carly Findlay, the book includes interviews with prominent Australians such as Senator Jordon Steele-John and Paralympian Isis Holt, poetry and graphic art, as well as more than 40 original pieces by writers with a disability or chronic illness.

Join Carly Findlay with contributors Anna Whateley, Emma Di Bernardo and Todd Winther in conversation with host Elisha Matthews for an empowering Writers+Ideas event.

Please note, this is a relaxed performance.
