Politics & Prose Book Event: Cece Bell - El Deafo
5015 Connecticut Ave NW
Politics & Prose
Bell's graphic memoir recounts her childhood experience of hearing loss, which included struggling with an unwieldy aid that ironically allowed her to hear some things she shouldn’t have. But her disability also let her find her quasi-superhero persona, and as "El Deafo, Hearer for All," Bell made friends and found respect.
Ages 8 – 12 (Amulet).
