September Book Club: ‘My Hard of Hearing Life’ by Cynthia Dixon

deaf book club
The HearingLikeMe team loves supporting #deaftalent and learning about the different perspectives of people who are living their lives fully, despite their hearing loss. To celebrate our challenges and expand our knowledge with the deaf community we have a monthly book club featuring deaf and hard of hearing authors. Join in and read with us!

This month, we’ve chosen the book, “My Hard of Hearing Life: Stories From Behind the Hearing Aids,” by Cynthia Dixon.

“My Hard of Hearing Life” aims to “unveil the secret thoughts of a hard of hearing person as she interacts with the hearing world.”

According to her biography on Amazon.com:

“Cynthia Dixon is a native Floridian born with a hearing loss, which was finally diagnosed when she was 11 years old.

“She is a former Librarian with experience in public and academic libraries. Her recent involvement with ALDA (Association of Late-Deafened Adults) FL – Suncoast Chapter, has brought her face-to-face with many people who have similar life experiences. She has finally met her ‘tribe.’”

Purchase the book on Amazon.com.
