Transcription of this session coming soon.

“Deaf people feel and see sound: the entire body becomes a receptor,” writes Fiona Murphy in The Shape of Sound. She kept her deafness secret for twenty-fi ve years. Blending memoir with observations about the healthcare industry, this beautifully crafted and powerfully written debut draws readers into a new sensory world, examining the stigma associated with disability while challenging assumptions about what it means to be deaf, and what it takes to truly communicate.
