What we’re reading…

Laughing at My Nightmare
 is an autobiography by Shane Burcaw. It is a humor-filled account of his life as a twenty-something living with spinal muscular atrophy. At the beginning of May, the Park City Library hosted Shane and his fiancée, Hannah Aylward, for a virtual author talk to discuss his second book, Strangers Assume My Girlfriend Is My Nurse. The NAC was in attendance, and we enjoyed hearing what the couple had to share about their adventures together, the topic of ableism and life in love as an inter-abled couple. The themes in both books ring true to the NAC spirit of trying new things, adapting and having fun along the way. Shane’s books are available on Amazon and Audible.

What we’re watching…

Crip Camp (2018)
Check out this trailer and find yourself immersed in a documentary recounting how the disability movement, Woodstock and a summer camp for people with disabilities all intertwine into what we’ll call some serious #AdaptiveNation magic in the 70s.

Did you know the NAC provided the accessible transportation for the cast and crew of the award-winning documentary, Crip Camp: A Disability Revolution, during The Sundance Film Festival? It was an absolute honor to get to know these awesome humans and be a part of history! Watch the video of our transportation here.
