Bethany Meloche returns to the city where she was raised

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.
