Bell, Cece




  1. I heard Cece speak last summer at Hollins. I am now a fan girl and looking forward to Learning more from her this summer. If you haven’t read El Deafo, you need to. It is charming and brave and teaches about what it is like to be a deaf child while making those struggles universal.

  2. Yay!! I loved El Deafo and all the students and teachers I hand it to enjoy it as well. Our new favorite is I Yam a Donkey. We laugh and laugh.

  3. I yam very excited!

  4. El Deafo was battle champ last year in my universe.

  5. What a line up, looks great.
