The ABC’s of Ability – A Reading at the Vancouver Public Library

November 5, 2013

On Monday, November 18th from 10:30 to 11:30 am, Siobhan Harris, Cheryl Fryfield and Susan Powell will be reading from the Spectrum Press publication The ABC’s of Ability. The public is welcome to attend this free event.

About the book:

“Consultant Susan Powell and photographer Larry Wells, both master educators, gathered together a team of adults with developmental disabilities to create a labour of love — an ABC primer that reflects their experiences of work, play and contribution, with their families, friends and co-workers. Photographed in their own homes and neighbourhoods, this singular little book reflects the contemporary experience, joys and challenges of people with disabilities living in the community.


In plain language for both children and new literacy learners the book is a clear and celebratory message to the communities they belong to about their lives.”

Susan, the creator, and Siobhan and Cheryl, two of the models and collaborators for this book, will be reading at the:

  • Vancouver Public Library
  • Harvey Southam Room
  • Children’s Library
