Growing Up Disabled In Australia

Although one in five Australians live with disability, people with disabilities remain under-represented in our literature. Growing Up Disabled in Australia is an urgent anthology of first-person stories described by The Sydney Morning Herald as “gripping the reader by the collar while pulling the rug out from under their feet”. Hear from four of the collection’s contributors – Fiona Murphy, Alistair Baldwin, Gayle Kennedy and Belinda Downes – as they speak with its editor, Carly Findlay, about navigating disability and what it means to be regarded as ‘different’.
