Diagnosed with autism and an intellectual disability, Michael Jacques shares experiences from his life to help people understand inclusion, acceptance, and belonging.

Can’t Read, Can’t Write, Here’s My Book—which is written by using an iPad’s speech-to-text function—is a down-to-earth collection of compelling life stories and discoveries that teach us how to embrace and celebrate our differences. Michael, who never surrenders to the idea of “can’t,” speaks about topics such as learning, inclusion, advocating, independence, and the power of perseverance.

His insights and views on the world are equal parts heartbreaking and inspiring. Through his witty and positive voice, Michael offers a glimpse on what it’s like to be him.

Michael’s books will be available to purchase (cash or etransfer).

Can’t Read, Can’t Write, Here’s My Book: $20
I Belong, Can I Play?: $15

(A portion of proceeds will be donated to Community Living Ontario & Special Olympics Canada.
