    Flying Hands

    How many deaf writers do you know?  One, two?  No?  How about four?  Kristen Harmon, Raymond Luczak, Allison Polk, Kristen Ringman.  These deaf published writers welcome you with their poems, stories, and memoir excerpts on being treated differently.  Despite recent bestsellers featuring deaf characters by hearing writers, the media rarely listens to deaf writers themselves.  These writers provide a needed corrective to the stereotyping of deafness and the cliched symbolism of silence.

    This event is part of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs Conference.  Sign- and voice-interpreted for all.
