Children’s book highlights deaf baseball hero; benefits Deaf Action Center
So I enjoyed visiting with author Nancy Churnin about her new book, “The William Hoy Story,” an inspiring and educational tale about an influential Major League Baseball player who was deaf. I immediately bought a copy for my 4-year-old great-nephew.
Last weekend she read from the book in Shreveport, and an interpreter from the Betty and Leonard Phillips Deaf Action Center of Louisiana signed her words.
Proceeds from all book purchases at Barnes & Noble Saturday benefited the Deaf Action Center. The benefit continues through today (March 24) with online purchases at bn.com, if you put in the book fair number, 11833704.
