Announcing the September book and book club: September 27, 2022: “The Radical Lives of Helen Keller (The History of Disability, 1)” by Kim E. Nielsen (nonfiction). We will meet at the usual time of 7:00pm (Central Time) on Zoom. We will be joined by author and professor Kim E. Nielsen. Dr. Nielsen has written several books on Helen Keller and her research focus is disability. You can read more about Dr. Nielsen at her University of Toledo webpage.
The HLAA-TC book club met on Tuesday, August 23rd to discuss the novel “A Maiden’s Grave” by Jeffrey Deaver. The book club alternates each month between fiction and nonfiction and we choose books that often focus on hearing loss, deafness or disability. The discussion about “A Maiden’s Grave” focused on the differences between being late deafened (as many of our members are) and being born Deaf. It leads us naturally into our discussion next month on Helen Keller with author Kim E. Nielsen.
The book club meets year-round on Zoom on the fourth Tuesday of the month. If you are interested in learning more about the book club and the books we have read and are planning to read, please visit our book club webpage: https://www.hlaatc.org/book-club/ And if you would like to attend a book club, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
