In 2015, we held several site events centered around different disabilities; we’re now excited to announce our first event of 2016. This time, it’s centered around a genre.
From March 14 to 27, join us for all kinds of posts about disability in science fiction and fantasy!
We have great content lined up: reviews of books like Patrick Ness’s The Rest of Us Just Live Here, discussions about fictional and magical disabilities in genre fiction, articles about disability and worldbuilding, and an interview with author Leigh Bardugo about disability in Six of Crows!
And there’s more! Disability in SF/F is such a rich topic that we’d love to discuss it with you all further. On Sunday, March 20 at noon EST, we’ll be hosting a Twitter chat to do just that. Stay tuned for more information.
We’re also juggling various other projects you’ll hear more about soon: we’ve nearly finalized the first version of the list of books that will appear on our official Disability in Kidlit Honor Roll, and we’re working on a long-term, site-wide project to include content warnings for every post we’ve done and every book we’ve discussed. This was long overdue. We’ll bring you more information shortly.
Finally, we’re looking for new reviewers with various disabilities. Take a look at our Tumblr for the details, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
