Recommendation Station: Raymond Luczak

10-11 am: NOT-SO-QUIET HANDS with Raymond Luczak
Progress Center

With the Deaf experience having become a trendy topic in the media these days, the publication of Raymond Luczak’s A Quiet Foghorn: More Notes from a Deaf Gay Life (Gallaudet University Press) couldn’t be more timely. Come meet with Raymond for a one-on-one chat and learn more not only about the Deaf queer community but also about recent titles by other writers that explore the queer and/or disability experience. An ASL interpreter will be on hand to assist with communication.

“With A Quiet Foghorn, Raymond Luczak again provides us with the life-sustaining exploration of Deaf and queer life that has characterized all his work. This is a book about the importance of connecting with others, pushing through loneliness and fear to the joy that comes from discovering and sustaining community.”

—Robert McRuer, author of “Crip Theory: Cultural Signs of Queerness and Disability”
