From: The Stream

Bonus Edition: Authors’ stories of resilience

On Friday, January 28 at 19:30 GMT:
This week on The Stream, we revisit conversations with authors who have turned struggle and hardship into powerful stories that can empower others. We’ll hear from a deaf and blind disability rights attorney, a writer and poet who survived an at-times cruel foster system, a mother on a quest to make children’s books more inclusive, and a woman who turned to writing to fight racism and sexism.
