Part four of the WSU Access Center’s disability and intersectionality book club is taking place 4-5 p.m. Thursday via Zoom. 

The fall 2021 semester book is “Sick: A Memoir.” Participants were expected to read three to four chapters of the book every month before discussing what they read during the previous three meetings, according to the book club website.

This meeting consists of a Q&A, where participants can ask author Porochista Khakpour various questions, according to the event page.

Through “Sick: A Memoir,” Khakpour shares her journey with chronic illness. She was eventually diagnosed with late-stage Lyme disease, according to the book club website.

This spring, book club members will read “Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice.” The collection of essays looks at the reality of sick and disabled queer, trans, Black and brown people, according to the book club website.
