Disabled Babes Book Club

Disabled Babes Book Club is a virtual book club for disabled folks & books with disabled representation! We meet on the 2nd Monday of each month @ 6:30PM-8:00PM EST.

This group is for folks who are disabled (self-defined) and anyone who is navigating living outside of the spectrum of neurotypical and/or able-bodied norms. Also, we’re strong believers that everyone is a babe- thus our book club is open to folks of all genders.

We honor that every individual is their own expert and every individual has the right to make their own choices including how they explain, understand, address, and describe their lived experience, mental/physical health, and identities.

Book Discussion Schedule: 7/11- Marbles, A Graphic Memoir by Ellen Forney: Chapters 1-4 8/8- Marbles, A Graphic Memoir by Ellen Forney: Chapters 5-9 9/12- The Pretty One by Keah Brown: Chapters 1-4 10/10- The Pretty One by Keah Brown: Chapters 5-8 11/14- The Pretty One by Keah Brown: Chapters 9-12

Attendance is not mandatory- come as you are whenever you want!

This book club is co-facilitated by Beck DeTrempe (they/them) and Alex Candage (ze/zir), disabled friends who are passionate about disabled representation and creating intentional spaces for disabled folks.

If you are unable to purchase the book we’re reading, please contact Beck DeTrempe to discuss scholarship opportunities. Limited scholarships are available and are first come, however, we set money aside for this and really want money to not be a barrier. Please let Beck know if you could use help purchasing a book.

We love our allies, but this space is not an ally space. This group will stay closed to its identity-specific patrons only.


ASL Interpreters are available by request. Please email us at beck@basicallywonderful.online to request ASL Interpretation at least two weeks prior to the meeting date. If you make a request under two weeks, we will do our best to accommodate you, but can not guarantee an interpreter will be available. For questions, accessibility needs, or book scholarships please contact Beck DeTrempe at beck@basicallywonderful.online
