At the Amberley Collaborative, we want to continually strengthen the understanding that informs our actions. Our book group meets quarterly to discuss books about disability and community. We welcome recommendations of books to read together, particularly books by disabled authors.
So far we have read:
Summer 2019: Community and Growth, by Jean Vanier
Fall 2019: Disability and the Way of Jesus: Holistic Healing in the Gospels and the Church, by Bethany McKinney Fox
Winter 2020: The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters, by Priya Parker
Our Spring 2020 book is Haben: The Deafblind Woman Who Conquered Harvard Law, by Haben Girma. We will have our discussion in May—online if we are still practicing social distancing. Stay tuned for an update on our plans.
