Amo Raju: Walk Like a Man: From Limited to Limitless, an Inspiring Story of Overcoming the Odds - Part of Derby Book Festival

25th May 2022 £5

Amraj "AJ" Rai was born into two worlds: one as a first-generation UK Punjabi Sikh, the other as a disabled child. From the onset, his parents were told that their eldest child would not amount to much in life due to his limited physical ability.

Based on the real-life events of Amo Raju, Walk Like a Man follows the trials and tribulations of navigating a world not designed for disabled people. In Amo's case, it led to a hidden life of depression.

Amo has battled societal norms as a disabled man to make his place in the world. He has overcome many obstacles and assumptions thrown at him, and he has made a real difference to the community around him.

Walk Like a Man is co-authored by Mani Hayre, a writer who helped bring Amo's story to life through the eyes of our main protagonist AJ.

AJ has his own yet very similar path, and in this semi-autobiographical book, you will walk right beside him facing no end of challenges in a life filled with meaning and purpose.

Amo will be in conversation with former Derby Telegraph Editor, Neil White who is a board member for Disability Direct.

11am-12noon.
