Author Norbert Nathanson will give a presentation on his book, A Secretly Handicapped Man: A Memoir, at the Camden Public Library on Thursday, December 12, at 7:00 pm. Born without feet and only one hand, Nathanson struggled to be accepted by society and find full-time employment. After over 30 years weathering stares and severe stigma, growing up in working-class, Depression-Era Pittsburgh, and trying desperately to enter the new field of television, the author experienced a miracle. New advances in medical science provided artificial legs which gave him normal height, natural appearance and gait, and the ability to enjoy previously unknown, life-altering public anonymity. His survival is a triumph, his life a victory.
