This month’s book is Listen: How Evelyn Glennie, a Deaf Girl, Changed Percussion¬†by Shannon Stocker.

This picture book tells the true story of world-famous deaf percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie.

As a child, Evelyn Glennie’s ears began to hurt. Voices became distant whispers. Ringing phones sounded like muffled crunches in her ears. But when she was told that she would need to wear hearing aids for the rest of her life, Evelyn was determined that this this would never stop her from playing music. Instead of giving up on her dreams, Evelyn found new ways to listen.


Please register all children. Only one adult per family group.

Please note any accommodation requests in the Special Needs section of the registration form.
