My master's degree is in library and information studies, but my bachelor's degree is in speech language pathology. I went to the University of Montevallo, so I was also able to get a minor in Deaf studies. I've long been interested in Deaf culture, especially American Sign Language. Once I became a children's librarian, I started reading every book I could find about the topic. Unfortunately, it is not very much. Disability representation in literature has a LONG way to go. But there is definitely enough to get you started, and Deaf History Month is the perfect time to start.
