Author/Illustrator Cece Bell talks about her memoir-graphic novel "El Deafo"
Host Sarika Mehta speaks with Cece Bell about "El Deafo," her memoir-graphic novel, a 2015 Newbery Honor Book.
Author/illustrator Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful—and very awkward—hearing aid. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become “El Deafo, Listener for All.”
