Plan ahead: Deaf culture celebration at Beacon Hill Library 1/27

The Library for Deaf Action (LDA) and the Washington State Association of the Deaf (WSAD) will present a celebration of the 300th birth of Abbé Charles-Michel de l’Épée, founder of the first public school for the deaf in Paris, in 1755. The event will take place at the Beacon Hill Library on Sunday, January 27, at 1:30 p.m.

The program on the importance of bridging deaf cultures at the library will include Ann Silver, an internationally known deaf artist from Seattle, and the the subject of the book Ann Silver: One Way, Deaf Way by James Van Manen.

The presentation will be in ASL with interpretation in spoken English. Deaf blind guests may request tactile interpreting services two weeks in advance. Contact 206-386-4690 or
