An Organization of Writers with Disabilities

First Book Fair Conference: Nine Authors Preview their Fifteen Books

Good Books, Unique Gifts, and New Opportunities at your Fingertips

Welcome to our first book fair event!

Behind Our Eyes, an organization of writers with disabilities, held its first book fair and two-hundred-seventy-third recorded conference call attended by nine presenters and many Behind Our Eyes member listeners. Bonnie Blose and Marilyn Brandt Smith hosted this two-hour event.

A brief introduction to the focus and activities of the organization was followed by a parade of books: novels, memoirs of personal challenge, writings of the holiday season, adventures and essays with agendas, and a sure-to-be-classic disability awareness book written to assist blind and visually impaired consumers in navigating the healthcare system.

Fifteen books were presented by their nine authors.
