Wed, Sept 24 at 4 pm: In El Deafo, her funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator CECE BELL chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful--and very awkward--hearing aid. The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear--sometimes things she shouldn't--but also isolates her from her classmates.
