Readers or Poets on your list?
Tara Kimberly Torme and Rachel Taylor
These like-minded poets have created two volumes of Haiku poetry. Their intimate and heartfelt conversations take the reader on a special and emotional journey, where it’s possible to glimpse the inner feelings of those sometimes marginalized by an unempathetic public.
Look for Tara’s daily twitter feed, where she posts a poem along with a question, and welcomes others to share these conversations with the world. https://twitter.com/taratorme

Dr. Sarah Schulman, Principal, InWithForward and Gord Tulloch, Director of Innovation, posAbilities
We’re living with head spinning uncertainty. A pandemic, a racial reckoning, and rabid political polarization are making visible holes in our safety nets and systems of thought. We cannot return to the way things were — but what might the alternative look like?
Buy the Trampoline Effect on Amazon and write a review – we’d love to know your thoughts!
The Power of Disability – Al Etmanski, Best selling author
My hope is that after reading this book, you will share it with others. Together, we can remove the barriers that prevent the full power of people with disabilities from flourishing.
“Extraordinary acts are not reserved for the special few. The vast majority of people are making the world a better place, including people with disabilities.
That’s why I wrote my new book – to awaken the world to the power of disability.
I am optimistic about what we can do when everyone’s gifts and talents are welcomed and enabled.”
Buy the The Power of Disability at your local bookstore if you can, or on any number of platforms including Amazon. See Al’s website for more information:
