Katherine Klimitas
Katherine  Klimitas picture

Although Katherine Klimitas leads a fairly normal life, she has Osteogenesis Imperfecta (Brittle Bone Disease) and has been wheelchair bound all of her life. She began her art and design career in grade school, and she graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Loyola University New Orleans in May 2011. In her new book, Looking Up, Klimitas shares her unique perspective on life, giving the reader insight through anecdotes and photographs.

Looking Up

Looking Up is an unforgettable glimpse inside Katherine Klimitas's world. Born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, more commonly known as Brittle Bone Disease, she has endured more physical challenges in twenty-two years than most people will in a lifetime. As Katherine is quick to point out however - physical challenges are just that: challenges, and she has tackled them all with grace, strength, and a wicked sense of humor.

Looking Up is Katherine's story told through personal reflections, anecdotes, and photographs. It is also an inspirational reminder of how important perspective is in your own life.
