VIRTUAL BOOK CLUB
Disability Network of Mid-Michigan is pleased to offer "Off The Shelf," a virtual book club where we read and discuss books that focus of people with disabilities.
We hope these books will engage thought-provoking conversation, provide learning opportunities for all, and offer a fun way to spend an evening together.
We invite you to join us Tuesday evenings, from 7-8pm. "Off The Shelf" meets online using the Zoom virtual platform. If you wish to participate, please fill out the registration form below and you will be sent a Zoom link prior to the next meeting.
Current Book Selection:
"Don't Call Me Crazy"
- Kelly Jensen
Tuesday, August 9 - 7-8pm
Tuesday, August 23 - 7-8pm
To understand mental health, we need to talk openly about it. Because there’s no single definition of crazy, there’s no single experience that embodies it, and the word itself means different things—wild? extreme? disturbed? passionate?—to different people.
In (Don’t) Call Me Crazy, thirty-three actors, athletes, writers, and artists offer essays, lists, comics, and illustrations that explore a wide range of topics:
their personal experiences with mental illness,
how we do and don’t talk about mental health,
help for better understanding how every person’s brain is wired differently
If you’ve ever struggled with your mental health, or know someone who has, come on in, turn the pages . . . and let’s get talking.
