“I am absolutely blown away by the beauty, poignancy, and depth of Rachel Zemach’s memoir, The Butterfly Cage! Reading this emotive book, I felt like I was right there with her in her classrooms as she described her joy of teaching! This memoir is not only moving, but it is also thorough and analytical as it enlightens readers about pervasive audism in Deaf Education. Readers are invited to wake up to the frustrations someone who is Deaf/deaf/HOH has, as people refuse to make communicative accommodations, such as using sign language or writing, and how this may even more likely occur if the Deaf person happens to speak.”
