NLS’s Patron Corner Program Coming Up On Wendesday, July 26th

On Wednesday, July 26, at 6:00pm (central), the National Library Service for the Blind and Disabled (NLS) Patron Engagement Section will host the quarterly Patron Corner. This will be a special program to commemorate the 33rd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and will feature a panel of speakers who will discuss their experiences before and after the passage of the ADA. Speakers include Annette Bay Pimentel, author of All the Way to the Top, and Jennifer Keelan-Chaffins, the subject of that book, who as an eight-year old with cerebral palsy crawled up the steps of the US Capitol to draw attention to the ADA. Other panelists include Scott Marshall, a retired designated Federal Officer of the FCC Advisory Committee, and Mark Richert, International Coordinator for Overbrook School tor the Blind in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The session will run for 90 minutes and promises to be a lively discussion!
