Joanne gives an excellent
rendition of her words. Comments from the audience following these
readings were always very positive. Said one audience member, "This was
the best reading I've ever heard." Joanne engages her audience with
just the right use of drama, voice inflection and gestures. She
performs her work.
The Deaf House
is a creative memoir by Joanne Weber. I heard her give a powerful
reading from the manuscript a couple years back at the awards dinner
where she received the John V. Hicks Manuscript Award. The reading was
funny, stirring and memorable. I knew then that I'd buy the book as soon
as it was available.
Joanne provides workshops on the following topics:
Using art to teach literacy to DHH children and youth
Using culturally responsive pedagogy to teach literacy to DHH children and youth
