Announcing our second HLAA-TC monthly book club selection and date and time of the next meeting. We are discussing the memoir “Life After Deaf” by Noel Holston on Monday, May 24th at 7:00 p.m. The meeting will last no longer than an hour and a half. This meeting is going to be held online on Google Meet (a free application with captions). This is a separate and additional meeting to the HLAA-TC monthly chapter meetings.

We met for the first time in April 2021 to discuss the novel “Deaf Sentence” by David Lodge. We plan to meet monthly year round (even when HLAA-TC isn’t meeting during the summer months). Schedule and books are determined by the participants in the book club. The first discussion was relatively informal. Google Meet’s live captions help with the accessibility. Google Meet is a free application that offers free captions. You can find out more about Google Meet here. It is a free application and website that works on PCs, Macs, Apple devices, and Android devices
