Gallaudet University Press did a beautiful job putting together my latest book, “Photographic Memories,” a collection of my essays, playlets, and short fiction along with 27 black-and-white photos. One of the book blurbs stated that “the pieces…are grounded in Deaf experiences, a hallmark of Conley’s work…written from the unique perspective of a Deaf artist who navigates between the Deaf and hearing worlds….”
Come see a pair of Deaf friends take over a karaoke bar and turn it on its ear. Find out what a deaf minor league baseball player learned what it takes to make it into the big leagues. Go back in time during the late 1980s and tour on a bus to experience a day in the life of actors with the National Theatre of the Deaf. Get a glimpse of what may happen to deaf people a thousand years into the future. Find out what an elderly hard-of-hearing man is up to on a porch with rocking chairs at an abandoned hotel by the sea.
Order yourself a copy of this book and take a walk down some memory lanes with me. Copies may be ordered from Amazon at https://tinyurl.com/4fc5258c and from G.U. Press: https://gupress.gallaudet.edu/photographic-memories.html
