Event Description

Join us to discuss True Biz by Sara Novic an enlightening coming-of-age tale that takes place in a boarding school for Deaf students. Set at the fictional River Valley School for the Deaf, True Biz is effectively a love letter to deaf culture, couched in a coming of age narrative mostly focusing on the budding relationship between two teenage students, Austin and Charlie. This is a story of sign language and lip-reading, disability and civil rights, isolation and injustice, first love and loss, and, above all, great persistence, daring, and joy. This enlightening and educational story weaves together historical content, sign language exercises, and riveting drama into a rich tapestry.

Books are also available as an ebook and eaudiobook on cloudLibrary.
