Book Reading with Q and A

Come to an exciting and fun event! I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible, on September 9th, at 1:00 PM. Join us for a glimpse into the realities, hopes and dreams of Deaf children and what it means to have a Deaf heart. ASL interpreters provided.

I will read a variety of short excerpts from my book, some funny, some serious and some shocking. We’ll have a Q and A, and I’ll sell/sign books.

An important book written from the heart about the educational challenges of deaf children

“I had the privilege of interviewing the author on my podcast, “The Art of Medicine with Dr. Andrew Wilner.” I would highly encourage anyone who knows a deaf child or who works in the public education system, especially special education, to read this enlightening, thoughtful and well researched book. It is likely you will view those who are hard of hearing and deaf very differently. It certainly opened my eyes to how much better we can do in our education of deaf children.”

– Andrew Wilner, MD

The Butterfly Cage

‘In “The Butterfly Cage,” Rachel Zemach fills that gap, and then some! Writing from the perspective of both a Deaf student, and long-time Deaf teacher of the Deaf, Rachel enabled me to finally gain some real insight into the severe impediments to learning that we educators create for our Deaf students…’
