Spend the evening with guest speaker Jen Powley, who will share her experience of the challenges facing persons with severe disabilities.
In May 2017, Powley released her first and only book, Just Jen: Thriving through Multiple Sclerosis, published by Roseway, an imprint of Fernwood Publishing. This powerful memoir tells the story of Powley’s life at the time of her diagnosis, and the infinite, irrevocable ways it has changed since.
Review of Just Jen: “Powley is fearless, not only in the way she lives her life but also in her willingness to call the rest of us on our b-s in the way we too often deal with people with disabilities. But she does it all with a self-deprecating wit and a twinkle in her eye that makes us want to be better than we are.” — Stephen Kimber, author of What Lies Across the Water
