Do any of you have a favourite book that features character(s) who have disabilities? We would love to hear about them.

A union activist with OPSEU (Ontario Public Service Union) years ago used to say, "I'm not sight-impaired! I'm BLIND!"

I didn't have good radio reception today but managed to hear most of your wonderful interview. Great conversation! I am thinking of Winnie the Pooh as I have read that the characters represent various mental health challenges. Interesting!
