Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha reads and talks about her latest book Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice at the Seward Park location of Third Place Books in Seattle on January 17.

"Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice is a collection profoundly necessary at this moment … the essays share a fundamental hypothesis: to achieve social justice, ableism must be destroyed.
