Meet the Authors: Gina A. Oliva and Linda Risser Lytle

HCAD, Maryland School for the Deaf, Howard County Poetry/Literature Society and Howard Community College invite you to join us at a Book and Author Event on April 21, 2015, 7:00pm, at the Miller Library in Howard County.

From the library's registration information:

Turning the Tide: Making Life Better for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Schoolchildren presents a qualitative study of deaf and hard of hearing (dhh) individuals who spent a sizeable proportion of their K-12 years as the only deaf children in their schools. Authors Oliva and Lytle discuss the challenges their subjects reported about friendship, identity, and support services. These stories demonstrate how dhh students need social as well as academic support to attain an equitable education.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Registration is required. Register online or by calling 410.313.1950.
