 Full Description: 
"Speakeasy" is a book written in an easy-to-read interview format that tells the personal stories of individuals with intellectual disabilities and their lives in institutions and community settings. The author has chosen to report the unique and often heart-breaking stories in the individual's own words without edits.

Of particular note is the contrast portrayed by individuals between their life while in the institution and their much improved outlook now that they are living out in the community. The book is now out of print, click on the "Web Links" tab above to buy used copies on amazon.com.
