Today's podcast 05/25/2015

  • Bell, Cece. EL DEAFO New York : Amulet, 2014 IL 3-6, RL 3.3 ISBN 1419710206 In her graphic novel memoir, author Cece Bell tells the story of becoming deaf at a young age and learning to live with the large contraption strapped to her chest that allows her to hear, the phonic ear. When she discovers that the phonic ear in fact allows her to hear what mere mortals cannot (like her teacher’s private conversations and *ahem* trips to the bathroom), she secretly imagines herself as the superhero, El Deafo. Childhood awkwardness, negotiating friendships, new schools, and everyday fun are all wrapped up in Cece’s hearing loss. With a lot of humor, this graphic novel gives us all an opportunity to learn a lot. (Booktalk by the NH Great Stone Face Committee)
