Good morning, y’all!
Today, I wanted to share a recommendation post for two reasons: 1. It’s Autistic Pride Month! and 2. I just wanted to!
April is Autistic Pride/Autism Acceptance Month, and as a blogger, I would be remiss not to recommend some authors and books to read!
This is a great month to highlight autistic authors and their books, but as the title mentions, they’re writers that you should absolutely be reading every month. As an allistic person (someone who doesn’t have autism), I do my very best to support and uplift autistic authors and their voices in any way I can. So, in that vein, I’ve put together a list of 20 autistic authors to read during Autistic Pride Month (and every month!), and I’ll share some other resources at the end of the post!
