The Podcast - Episode 12

I've been so focused on books and my reading life that I haven't shared something very important, both to me AND How I Feel About Books: my journey of working with people with disabilities! My past involves volunteering, art classes, and writing workshops. In the near future, I plan to start a book club for adults with disabilities and provide library services for this population.

Listen to the podcast on iTunes or PodBean.

Just like my coffee, this week is DONE! Thanks for listening!

I didn't talk about this on the podcast because I completely forgot! I need to start making notes about points I want to discuss. While I was still volunteering at SRVS with the art class, I also started my own program called We Are Storytellers. I worked one-on-one with an individual to tell and illustrate their own story. This continued for several months, even after I was an employee, until my other duties became more consuming and I had to let this project go. I had big dreams for it, so I hope to revive it soon, maybe in the form of a writing workshop (which Next Chapter Book Club also promotes - how perfect for me is this organization?!). Check out the site: We Are Storytellers.
