“Disability Could Save Your Life”, A Reading By Kenny Fries

Author, Memoirist and Poet Kenny Fries–who is also a friend and guest lecturer to DSI–has shared a thoughtful piece in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Disability Could Save Your Life”, which combines essay and poetic structure, has multiple layers of meaning that extend far beyond the pandemic moment. In his explanation, Kenny highlights that: “on the surface, it is about the uncertainty and danger of these times, [but] it is also about misunderstandings of what constitutes a disabled life, misunderstandings that are a pandemic of its own.”

You can read more about Kenny’s story and perspectives in his book In the Province of the Gods.
