spotlight-#3---Bethany-meloche

Ann Arbor native and master storyteller Bethany Meloche returns to the city where she was raised to read from and talk about her memoir How Should a Body Be?, a coming-of-age story about growing up in Michigan and discovering she suffers from Charcot-Marie-Tooth, an inherited genetic disorder that affects her ability to walk, run and grasp onto objects. Now a global adventurer, Meloche shares how life’s most valuable lessons can be learned through the simple acts of buying a slice of pizza, going on a first date, or crossing a busy street. Known for her sense of humor and brutal honesty, Meloche tells stories about living, and thriving, with whatever life-cards we’re dealt.
