When her daughter Ali was born in 1977, doctors said she would never speak, due to a profound hearing loss. Now at 60-years-old Wendy Kupfer has authored her first book, Let Hear it For Almigal (May 2012, Handfinger Press), featuring a precocious little girl wearing cotton-candy pink cochlear implants, based on Ali who has grown into a beautiful, self-confident, happily married woman with a masters degree in Social Work. As a advocate for children with hearing loss Wendy is advising new moms of children with hearing loss, reading to students in schools, speaking to various organizations, and working closely with leading cochlear implant surgeons. Based in South Florida, Wendy is a mother of 2 and grandmother of 3, and is currently working on the sequel to Let’s Hear it for Almigal.
She stops by on Sunday, May 26, at 7pm EST.
