Leblang's new book, Echoes of Jerry, focuses on the author's quest to understand his deaf uncle Jerry and their deep connection which continues today, forty years after Jerry's death.

Growing up in Beachwood, Judah Leblang felt a deep connection with his Uncle Jerry, an orally-educated deaf man who lived an isolated life between the deaf and hearing worlds. Like Jerry, Leblang felt different, too, struggling with his sexuality and trying to find his place in society, finally coming out in the mid-1980's. Many years later, after working in the deaf community and losing much of his own hearing, the author goes on a quest to understand his late uncle and to give him a voice—this man who died of a heart attack at 44, and who remained a mystery to those around him, encased in his silent world.

Books will be available for sale and signing, courtesy of local publisher Red Giant Books.
