Side 1 of Bill Alton's Dis/Representation reading's flyer. Left: pencil sketch by Bill Alton, of a woman's face with flattened lips and one eye looking suspiciously out from under a curl of smudged hair. Text: Dis/Representation: Reading into Disability with author William L. Alton. Loss and love often go hand in hand. You love your family, your friends, your partners, but relationships are fluid. They come and go. Everything has its cycle and comes to an end. Autnor William L. Alton will be reading from his new chapbook, "Drowning is a Slow Business." The chapbook deals with relationships and mental illness. Each poem is a story told in its own right. Discussion following the reading. A program of the Disability Art and Culture Project"

Second side of the Bill Alton reading flier: text: "Dis/Representation: Reading Into Disability with author William L. ALton, a program of the Disability Art and Culture Project. Reading and discussion with the author August 10th, 2013, 2:00-3:15pm.
