Book Ryan Knighton for your next corporate event, function, or private party.
Ryan Knighton is a Canadian writer who is best known for his work Cockeyed: A Memoir, written in 2006, which is about his blindness. As a blind author, he’s earned a lot of attention as a writer who is also very well-spoken and prolific.

Currently, he lives with his wife and daughter in Vancouver, Canada. Ryan has written a total of three books so far: Cars (which was co-written by George Bowering, Canada’s very first Parliamentary Poet Laureate); Cockeyed: A Memoir (arguably his most famous work to date); and C’Mon Papa: Dispatches from a Dad in the Dark, which was published in 2012. Ryan has also released a book of poems called Swing in the Hollow, which was also a highly popular publication. Ryan has also made several on-screen appearances, like co-starring on the award-winning film Blind Sushi alongside Chef Bun Lai. He was also the main subject of the documentary film As Slow As Possible, which came out in 2008 and was directed by the award-winning Scott Smith.

There is low probability to book Ryan Knighton for a party with anything substantially less than the published booking cost price range.
