Dream Shot: The Journey to A Wheelchair Basketball National Championship by Josh Birnbaum. University of Illinois Press, 2017.

In 2008, the men’s wheelchair basketball team at the University of Illinois started on the journey to achieve their sports pinnacle, a college national championship.

Dream Shot follows the unique lives of the players and coaches on the road in quiet moments at home and the classroom. There are also many action shots from the court. With the added concept of telling the story through photography, the reader understands the joys and not so happy moments with a visual concept to complement the words of the author.

Dream Shot memorializes a legendary team alongside the story of the university's dedication to the progress of disability rights. The visuals in this book make understanding and feeling the emotions of the coaches and players very relatable.

A copy of this book can be checked out from the Paralysis Resource Center’s library.
