Dear Library Patrons, The mission of NYPL is to inspire lifelong learning, advance knowledge, and strengthen our communities. Government support only pays for a portion of our work, so we rely on you to help - from stocking our shelves with amazing books, expanding our e-Book selection, classes, events, or even making free WiFi accessible to all. We are trying to raise $500,000 by December 31: an ambitious goal, but one that will fund incredible learning and reading in our community. Please consider donating to help keep our services free to all New Yorkers in 2015 >>

Absolutely amazing memories recorded of growing up in a deaf household. So heart warming at times so crushing and sad at others. A great read!

After flipping through the book and seeing 4 curse words in two adjacent paragraphs, I was disgusted, and will be taking it back ASAP.
