Disability artist, curator, and writer Riva Lehrer reads from her book, Golem Girl, at UTA

Tuesday, Jun 01, 2021

Golem Girl, a memoir, traces my childhood as the disabled daughter of a disabled mother. Our story intersects with medical history in unexpected ways. As I enter adulthood, I meet many foundational members of Disability Culture; they guide me through new understandings of queerness, impairment, and the complexity of identity.”

Riva Lehrer shared readings from her childhood at a “special school for the disabled” as well as historical photographs and images of her work in portraiture.
