Amanda Leduc’s book Disfigured marks a milestone in accessible publishing in Canada
Congratulations to Hamilton Ontario author Amanda Leduc whose book Disfigured is the first Canadian title to be published in all accessible and traditional formats simultaneously. We were thrilled to work with Amanda, her publisher Coach House Books and with National Network for Equitable Library Service (NNELS) to make the project a reality.
“We cannot think of a more appropriate title to become one of Canada’s first accessible titles in all formats on publication” says Rina Hadziev, Executive Director of the Centre for Equitable Library Access. “Amanda’s energy and passion for accessibility, and the commitment of her team at Coach House made this milestone possible. We hope this collaboration might become a template for other publishers moving forward to increase books for people with print disabilities in Canada.”
On September 5, 2018, the New York Times published a bombshell essay and took the rare step of granting its writer anonymity. Described only as "a senior official in the Trump administration," the author provided eyewitness insight into White House chaos, administration instability, and the people working to keep Donald Trump's reckless impulses in check. With the 2020 election on the horizon, Anonymous is speaking out once again. In this book, the original author pulls back the curtain even further, offering a first-of-its-kind look at the president and his record.
