Pittsburgh Live/Ability: Encounters in Poetry and Prose
What does it mean to live in one of U.S.’ “most livable” cities? Who benefits? Whose experiences are often ignored?
Pittsburgh Live/Ability: Encounters in Poetry and Prose is a literary collection that reflects the realities of life for Pittsburghers with disabilities. It is the creative culmination of two years of work between 11 multilingual, multiply disabled, and multiply abled Pittsburgh writers and 11 Pittsburghers with disabilities. The anthology is an intimate collaboration recounting what it means to translate oneself into an abled world, and the dynamic and textured diversity of lives pursued in our city.
