Bouchercon 2019

Differently Abled is Still Abled” panel event at Bouchercon 2019 with authors: Kathryn McClatchy, Kelly Brakenhoff, David Douglas, Cathy Rueter, and Tosca Lee.

Description: By the final Miss Marple novel, she was in her eighties and terribly frail—but her mind was sharp as ever. The television series Ironside was one of the first—and only—crime series to feature a main character in a wheelchair. Why is there such a dearth of writing characters who are differently abled? How does one who is not differently abled write about a character who is? Join us for a talk about the creative challenges of writing about differently abled characters, and why it is so important for those characters to exist?
