This year’s Disability History Month is focussing on Disability, Health and Well Being.
During Disability History Month the library will be supporting other events, including an author talk from Kent Alumni and disability rights activist Chloe Timms.
Join us on Wed 7 Dec in the Templeman Library at 1.15pm – get your free ticket to hear her reading an excerpt and have an opportunity to purchase her novel, The Seawomen.
The library, with help from Student Services and the staff disability network, has created a reading list featuring over 60 books, podcasts and films. This includes novels, memoirs, guidance and other nonfiction titles. We’ve also curated podcasts that celebrate the lived experience and inspirational films and talks.
These reading lists have been created for those who want to feed their literary curiosity and discover new books and resources outside of their academic studies. We hope you enjoy them but if you feel something is missing then let us know and you can help add to this collection.
Many of these resources are available to borrow from the Templeman Library – check out the display in the Library Café, or in the Drill Hall Library from 16 November.
