Friday 27th September 2019, at City Lit, London.
‘Stammering Pride and Prejudice: Difference not Defect’ challenges the stereotype that stammering is inherently negative. It positions stammering as a different, valuable and respected way of speaking.
It is the first published book exploring stammering from a social model perspective written for people who stammer and the general public, as well as professionals.
The launch event includes a keynote alongside presentations, chapter readings and “discussions on how we can liberate the stammered voice”.
