Crossing that Bridge is the first book to deal with making literary events accessible to deaf and hard of hearing people. Though Crossing that Bridge specifically addresses organizers of literary events (such as poetry readings, author signings, and storytellings), it is also a useful toolkit for anyone who interprets or attends these events. Included are practical suggestions, explanations, diagrams, checklists, references, and resources guaranteed to help literary readings or events for deaf and hard of hearing run smoothly. Whether your literary event is aimed exclusively for a deaf/hard of hearing audience or merely seeks to be inclusive of all possible audience members, this book is an essential guide.
