Episode 12, Gawk with Dianne Bilyak

The featured story Gawk is about that fishbowl feeling, when you realize others see you as different. The way Dianne Bilyak writes about growing up with her sister Chris – who has down syndrome – is heartrending and funny. It’s a gift to siblings and parents of all abilities. Dianne is a disability rights advocate, an author, and as she says ‘ a poet who went off the rails’. Her book with a long title, took a long path to publication. It’s a great story. You can find Nothing Special: The Mostly True, Sometimes Funny, Tales of Two Sisters through her website. And, you can see how the sisters relate today on her Nothing Special Book Facebook Page. Thanks for listening!
