Passionate Lives

A new book tells the stories of 22 deaf and hard of hearing people "living out their passions and doing what they were born to do" such as I. King Jordan, former president of Gallaudet University and rapper Sean Forbes. The Passionate Lives of Deaf and Hard of Hearing People comes from the pen of Karen Putz, a mother of three deaf and hard of hearing kids. She grew up hard of hearing herself and says, "It is my hope that every deaf and hard of hearing person will pick up this book and realize they can live the life they’re passionate about–all that’s needed is the courage to unwrap their passion and put it in motion."
