Book Talk with Matthew Del Papa - This event has already occurred
Matthew Del Papa is the author of the collection of humorous essays, Jerry Lewis Told Me I Was Going to Die, launching May 2023. This collection of humorous essays is centered on life with a disability. Disability may be his lot, but he decided long-ago not to let it control his fate. For many people even the thought of being disabled is a nightmare. Matthew gets that fear. Sitting where he does, in a wheelchair for the past 40 years, he knows first-hand that living with a disability in a small town is not easy. But, rather than dwell on his physical impairments, he has chosen to laugh at life’s ridiculousness. Whether it’s his ongoing feud with William Shakespeare, his elevator meet-cutes with famous celebrities, or his love-hate relationship with public transportation, Matthew reveals the humour in being disabled.
