Dancing at the Shame Prom

It’s here!  It’s here!

Dancing at the Shame Prom, Sharing the Stories That Kept Us Small, edited by Amy Ferris and Hollye Dexter, is here.  I am more than honored to be a part of this anthology of amazing women.

Dancing at the Shame Prom is full of stories that talk about the dark, forbidden, scary feelings that keep us from fully living our lives.  In my essay, Residual Shame, I share my feelings of shame about being disabled.

Here’s what people are saying:

“Wise, funny, and undeniably smart, this collection about shame lifts the stigma, sheds new light, and is both very human and humane.”  ~Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You

“Shame degrades the spirit, steals hope, and stunts growth; Dancing at the Shame Prom does the opposite.  It’s therapy for the soul – as cathartic for the reader as for the powerful and triumphant women who wrote it.”   ~ Sean Strub, editor and founder of POZ magazine
