BAYARD, Iowa, October 17, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Melissa Lewis has completed her new book “Emerging Wings: Becoming Myself”: a powerful collection of topics that have a high impact on the deaf community. The author sheds a helpful light on these issues through her encounters. She points out the limitations of the run-of-the-mill solutions and workarounds for common challenges faced in relations between deaf and hearing people.
“It is my dream that, one day, the communities can come together without the need of either community to act, meaning the hearing community does not have to be informed and educated about the deaf culture and the deaf community does not have to request accommodations in advance. Until then, I will continue to be a communication and advocacy bridge between the hearing and deaf communities. I will also continue to focus on myself and on becoming the person I am meant to be, not defined by either community. Life will continue to be a learning journey for me,” said Lewis.
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Melissa Lewis’ meaningful work is a practical book for anyone wishing to express themselves more clearly, respectfully and inclusively across hearing and deaf communities. Hearing readers will especially appreciate the views of the author, as she has created a platform here to relay to the hearing people of the world how demanding simple tasks can be for a deaf person in a world that is not exactly accommodating.
Readers who wish to experience this educational work can purchase “Emerging Wings: Becoming Myself A Bridge between the Hearing and Deaf Communities” at bookstores everywhere or online at the Apple iBooks Store, Amazon or Barnes & Noble.
