The Great American Read: Facebook Live - Making Reading Accessible to All with NCAM

  • 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM
  • Thursday, August 23, 2018

Audio books have made novels almost universally accessible, but what about the extended experience of loving books? The National Center for Accessible Media (NCAM) at WGBH has many examples of making movies based on books accessible, but they've also made things like fan websites, amusement park rides, etc. accessible too. For this Facebook Live, Donna Danielewski, Director of NCAM, explores how NCAM has made the experience of reading accessible to people of all abilities. Join us live at WGBH Studio at the Boston Public Library or follow along on Facebook @WGBHBoston.
