Author Talk and Reading with George Estreich, Fables and Futures Biotechnology, Disability, and the Stories We Tell Ourselves
Event Date: Wednesday, May 01, 2019
Location: 6-7:30pm. San Francisco Public Library & live stream
If our new biotechnologies are to help us, we must see them clearly—and we must also recognize that, as currently constituted, they reflect and amplify our misconceptions about disability and our devotion to the often-destructive idea of 'normal.'
George Estreich is the author of The Shape of the Eye: A Memoir. His writing has appeared in Tin House, the New York Times, Salon, and other publications. He teaches writing at Oregon State University.
