ABOUT THE ART ACCESS BOOK GROUP
The Art Access Book Group has investigated how and why people with disabilities, and other underrepresented populations, have been depicted in literary texts and considers the historical, social, and cultural impact of these depictions. Selected texts coincide with annual themes explored in other Art Access programs.
The Art Access Book Group meets at Art Access, 230 South 500 West, Suite 110. Sessions are FREE and open to the public, but are limited to 18 registered participants in each session. The group is facilitated by Susan Anderson, literary scholar and consultant for Art Access.
A few copies of each book are available from Art Access and may be borrowed for a limited time. Personal copies also maybe purchased by participants or borrowed from local libraries. If you have questions about accessing texts, please contact Elise Butterfield at [email protected].
The stories of all of us.
OUR MISSION: Art Access provides equal opportunities to inclusive arts programming for Utahns with disabilities and those with limited access to the arts.
