Thanks to those of you who joined me for one or more of my virtual book tour events in June! If you missed one or you just need to repeat or share one you’ve already enjoyed, here’s a handy list that includes recordings of just about every virtual event I did in celebration of the publication of There Plant Eyes: A Personal and Cultural History of Blindness. Each event is as different as the blind, disabled, and nondisabled authors that were kind enough to converse with me, so don’t be shy to check out more than one…
