Award-winning author & illustrator Cece Bell will talk about her latest book, El Deafo, a graphic novel that describes her experiences growing up deaf in the 1970s.
As a child, Cece felt like she was a superhero with special powers from her hearing aid. So she called herself "El Deafo."
Do not miss this spectacular author and her latest book, which the New York Times says "should be an inspiration for those who are 'different,' and it should help others to understand just what being different means."
