The BIG READ: Social Justice and the Deaf
'The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter' by Carson McCullers is the 2013 BIG READ. Published in 1940, the book is about a deaf man named John Singer and his acquaintances living in a 1930s Georgia mill town. It realistically depicts the lives of the socially excluded and oppressed, and gives voice to their aspirations for equality and social justice.
Please join Val Wojton, American Sign Language teacher at the Western PA School for the Deaf, for a BIG READ discussion of social justice and the deaf.
