Two book selections by Japanese poet/author Naoki Higashida:
- The Reason I Jump
- Fall Down 7 Times Get Up 8: A Young Man’s Voice from the Silence of Autism
We thought some people might more easily access a copy of one or the other from their libraries, etc., so we welcome you to choose or read both if you become intrigued.
The OIFN Book Club is one thread of the Ontario Independent Facilitation Network (OIFN) Community of Practice.
We meet every few months, sometimes in person in Guelph, sometimes over Zoom Video Conferencing, and also through this Facebook Group as well, to discuss a book that relates to either disability issues or to wider topics of leadership and community, in the context of Independent Facilitation.
This is a Closed Group with membership by request or invitation, but all are welcome!
This Group is moderated by Susannah Joyce, London, ON and Joanna Goode, Erin, ON
