The Reader's Advisor: "Bio-Adversity"

Bio-Adversity? I hadn't heard that term before. Hmmm. Interesting.

The synopsis for the title-linked web page is "Enjoy biographies? For motivation and inspiration, read about individuals who have overcome physical challenges and carried on to lead successful, productive lives. Heroes, after all, know no boundaries!" Okay, we're on the same page with that. There are even some books on this list that might provide good background material for those of us fighting to protect disabled people from the 'quality of life' brigades. And, besides that, there are some really interesting stories here, it looks like. (Each title is briefly described.)

Parents please note that this list appears to be mostly wholesome, inspirational and adventure-filled stuff but it does include a couple books I'd put in the PC-crowd column. Vetting is advised.

The list is compiled by Joan Kepins, Reference Department, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, New York. My thanks to the lady.
