The Language of Light: Gerald Shea
Nov 7 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Gerald Shea lives mostly in the realm of the hearing, but as a partially deaf person, his search for communicative grace and clarity is quartered in his understanding of the world of the Deaf, of which he feels he is a part. His new book, The Language of Light tells the story of the arduous struggles of the Deaf across centuries (joined by their hearing allies) to attain and preserve the right to be taught in their unspoken tongue—the only language that renders them complete, fully communicative beings.

Gerald Shea has lived most of his life in New York and Paris, and practiced law in both cities for many years as a member of the New York and Paris bars. He is the author of Songs without Words (Perseus Books, 2013) and The Language of Light (Yale Univ. Press, 2017), and is currently working on a book on children in wartime. He and his wife Claire de Gramont live in France and spend the summers on the North Shore of Massachusetts.
