In the second installment of the “More than Meets the Eye” series, Rev. Rebecca interviews award-winning author Jo Elizabeth Pinto to raise awareness and explore the diversity of the disability community.
Jo Elizabeth Pinto, who is blind and has several autoimmune diseases that affect her stamina and concentration, shares how she hopes people won’t judge disabilities based on physical appearance. She also speaks about her passions and joys in life, which include raising her twelve-year-old daughter.
Pinto also invites readers to check out her novel The Bright Side of Darkness as well as her nonfiction book Daddy Won’t Let Mom Drive the Car: True Tales of Parenting in the Dark to help gain a better understanding of disabilities and encourage positive change in the world.
