Episode 385: The Power of ASL with Lauren Barrett

My guest today is Lauren Barrett. She is a multi-passionate mom, teaching students who are deaf and hard-of-hearing, coaching cross country, blogging about mindful/positive parenting, and as of recently writing an inclusive children’s book called Henry’s Hiccups which features a deaf character and biracial family. What is even better is that my book was illustrated by two of her former deaf students. 🙂

In the novel “Heirlooms”, author Sandra Byrd intertwines the lives of four women across generations and explores the impact of secrets kept, love passed down, and the heirlooms inherited from a well-lived life. Two friends learn the depth of their grandmothers’ friendship and the sacrifices they made that are impacting the younger generation in the present-day. Readers will also get a taste of how emotional the journey can be for immigrants seeking the “American Dream” and how common life experiences can bridge cultural gaps to turn friends into family. Available now at your favorite book retailer or on Amazon.
