Jerry Ratch 

When: Sun., Jan. 17, 3 p.m. 2010
Price: free

In the years before vaccines changed everything, Jerry Ratch contracted polio, thus becoming his Illinois neighborhood's "crippled nine-year-old kid" in a matter of weeks. He'd always been right-handed; now his "right arm and hand ... lay lifeless on the couch," Ratch writes in his new memoir A Body Divided, which he discusses at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland) on Sunday, Jan. 17. 3 p.m., free.
