Life is not an easy journey, full of ups and downs. It can be challenging for people who have to navigate through their daily activities with a disability in tow. It can even reach a point where those affected are hindered from their aspirations. Anthony Candela, who powers through despite poor eyesight, does not say the same in this memoir, which he shares with all.

San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

I found this memoir to be very insightful into the practical difficulties faced by people with tunnel vision, which I didnt know much about, and limited vision leading ultimately to blindness. The book was also quite revealing about the assistance and support that was available to sight disabled people during Tonys younger days (in the 1950s) and how this has changed over the course of his life. I also gained a lot of knowledge about life in New York City. – Robbie Cheadle (Amazon customer)

A special week is coming for bibliophiles in Hong Kong and those who will be traveling there this July. The Hong Kong Book Fair, which is one of the largest book fairs in Asia, will take place from July 17 to 23, 2024. Exciting activities and fascinating sights await fairgoers who appreciate the written word and are passionate about books.

The Hong Kong Book Fair 2024 is set to be held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre 1 Harbour Road, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, where attendees will have a grand time together with people who share the same interest as them: a love for beautiful stories from the most creative minds and connect with authors, publishers, and even fellow readers.

The self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet will again be exhibiting at this inspiring event, bringing a wide range of thought-provoking, compelling, and entertaining works. One of them will be the emotionally-stirring memoir by Anthony R. Candela, titled Stand Up or Sit Out: Memories and Musings of a Blind Wrestler, Runner and All-around Regular Guy.

Anthonys beloved memoir provides strength to those who bear the heavy weight of disabilities as they journey through the complicated road of life. No one is perfect, and kindness should always be the first response for all, especially towards those who are born with a handicap that is beyond anybodys control.

Stand Up or Sit Out focuses on Anthonys perseverance, determinedly and imperfectly, no matter what. Readers will be in awe of how Anthony even engaged in running, wrestling, skiing, and scuba diving despite his poor eyesight, which is slowly progressing to blindness.

Attendees to the Hong Kong Book Fair 2024 can browse Stand Up or Sit Out: Memories and Musings of a Blind Wrestler, Runner and All-around Regular Guy by Anthony R. Candela at ReadersMagnets exhibit.
