    • CANCELLED: Judah Leblang presents Echoes of Jerry: One Man's Search for His Deaf Uncle and His Own Voice

      Main Library, Lecture Hall, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      Boston area writer and storyteller (and Lesley University alum) Judah Leblang will share excerpts and sign copies of his new memoir, "Echoes of Jerry: One Man's Search for His Deaf Uncle and His Own Voice" on Tuesday evening March 17 at the CPL. Leblang's memoir traces the deep connection the author shared with Jerry, an orally-educated deaf man, as two outsiders in their small family. After Jerry's sudden death from a heart attack at age 44, the author went on to become a teacher of deaf children and sign language interpreter--and to eventually find his own voice as an openly gay man, a storyteller, and a writer. Amos Lassen, (LGBT and Jewish Community book critic, @ reviewsbyamoslassen.com) explained: “Leblang beautifully uses his own life and his uncle’s as jumping off points to ask universal questions about how one deals with the desire to belong to a community. " Rick Beyer, author of the New York Times bestseller The Ghost Army called it, "A tender, intimate, revealing memoir that will strike a chord with anyone who has ever felt different, or struggled to understand just how they fit into the world." Judah Leblang is the author of two memoirs, Finding My Place (Lake Effect Press, 2012) and Echoes of Jerry, (Red Giant Books, 2019). He is a columnist for Bay Windows, Boston's LGBT newspaper, and teaches memoir-writing at GrubStreet in Boston.

Additional books, chosen by the group, tend to be more contemporary. Those read in the last three years include Adiga's Between the Assassinations, Welty's The Golden Apples, Camus's The Plague, Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, DuBois's The Souls of Black Folk, and Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. A Shakespeare play is read every year. Requirements: There are only two: read the scheduled work and participate in the discussion. These requirements are waived for those attending their first meeting. Preregistration is not required but is encouraged, since the library will provide, in advance and at no charge, a copy of the reading for anyone planning to attend.
