YEAR OF THE TIGER An Activist's Life

by | Read by Nancy Wu

Biography & Memoir • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Nancy Wu performs this stunning memoir from disability rights activist Alice Wong. Born with spinal muscular atrophy, Wong has spent her life advocating for equal access--for herself and other disabled people. She tells her story in a series of essays, interview transcripts, images, and illustrations, creating a scrapbook-like feel. Wu deftly performs each section, using image descriptions and other audio signifiers to give listeners a fuller picture of each chapter. This method mirrors how many blind and visually impaired people experience images in text and makes the audiobook seem very interactive--like a group project between Wong, Wu, and listeners.
