SUCH A PRETTY GIRL A Story of Struggle, Empowerment, and Disability Pride

by | Read by Jennifer Jill Araya

Biography & Memoir • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Jennifer Jill Araya gives a spirited performance of this captivating memoir by disability rights activist Nadina LaSpina. LaSpina, who contracted polio as a baby in Sicily, moved with her family to the U.S. as a teenager. She recounts the time she spent in hospitals, the abuse she suffered at the hands of doctors, and her experiences as a leader in the disability rights movement. LaSpina's writing about disability culture is especially poignant, and Araya's narration beautifully captures her burgeoning sense of disability pride. Whether she's describing intimate moments between lovers or historic protests, Araya's smooth, musical voice is a pleasure to listen to. Her ability to capture emotions heightens the power of LaSpina's story. L.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
