Golem Girl, A Memoir 

Children with congenital impairments often spend months to years in the hospital. A medical childhood may set them apart from their peers; it may form their ideas about family, friendship, trust, safety, and hope. For this lecture, Riva Lehrer will read from Golem Girl, show images of her portraiture, and discuss her own journey from stigmatized child to passionate chronicler of non-normative beauty.
