Graphic with many apparently disabled people standing, sitting, and moving above the words, life in the margins: a book club for curious people.

One billion. More than one billion people around the world are disabled. In fact, we’re the world’s largest minority. Statistically speaking, there’s a good chance this book is relevant to you.”
