Nice introduction to this forum, Katharine! I’d like to hear (for a future edition) about well-known stories featuring disabled characters. Benjy from The Sound and the Fury, Lenny from Of Mice and Men, and Jake Barnes from The Sun Also Rises come to mind. Does their presence alone in the canon help or hurt? What about others? The books aren’t ABOUT disability, but it features prominently.
