To spread the word on Drew’s recently published Memoirs, Cheryl and I have continued to reach out to disability and Right-to-Die organizations, disability and health policy -related journals, university, and grade schools (high and elementary schools) . Donna has turned to Facebook to share the news with high school friends, and Renee has found contacts through regional Florida newspapers. It’s feeling more and more like finishing the book was the easy part, copy-editing it, the most tedious, and marketing it, the most effortful.
We appreciate everyone’s efforts in sharing the news of the Memoir on your own social media. It’s challenging to share broadly when the book’s focus is chiefly disability-related rights. Yet each one of us will likely experience the wrath of functional limitations at some point in our lives through age or disease, at work or in retirement, so the work of Drew’s is something to reflect on– if preserving choice and opportunity are important in one’s life.
Let’s see what we can all do to keep spreading the word over the next 6 months.
