|About:||Take part in celebrating the upcoming Deaf History Month in March by joining us for a viewing of the short film, The Silent Child. Inspired by real-life events, this Oscar-winning short follows Libby, a profoundly deaf child in a hearing family, nearing her first day at school. A social worker arrives to teach Libby sign language and a relationship is developed.
Discussion after the film will include Connie Stevens, a local mom who is hearing, and is raising a daughter who is deaf.
