In 2001, the Smithsonian Institution presented the landmark photographic exhibition History Through Deaf Eyes, representing nearly 200 years of United States deaf history. Drawing heavily on the extensive archives at Gallaudet University, the curators created an exhibition that drew more than 400,000 people viewed at the Smithsonian and in 12 cities during a five-year national tour. Its popularity prompted the production of a documentary film for national broadcast on the Public Broadcasting System. Now, the photographs, quotes, and stories from this remarkable exhibit and documentary have been assembled in a book of stunning beauty and poignant images,Through Deaf Eyes: A Photographic History of an American Community. Featuring more than 200 full-color photographs,Through Deaf Eyesdepicts the story of Deaf America and also affords readers the opportunity to learn about the nationrsquo;s broader history. The values and judgments of society have had an impact on the education, employment, and family life of deaf people, while historical eras often can be illuminated by examination through a Deaf lens. Photographs reveal the character of Deaf people in school settings, the workplace, during wartime, and using their cultural signature, American Sign Language. For both deaf and hearing readers, the Deaf community portrayed inThrough Deaf Eyesoffers a unique and fascinating perspective on the value of human difference.

Jack Gannon and Cyndi Williams-Barnier were best friends in high school with dreams of writing books together after graduation, but lost track of each other immediately after. Thirty-two years later they reunited and picked up where they left off. One year later they self-published "Murder In Twos and Threes" followed by "Trail of The Talon", the first two books in their "Task Force" Series. PDMI Publishing contracted them in 2014 and republished "Murder" with "Talon" soon to follow. PDMI will be publishing the next two books in their series, "The Latrodectus Murders" and "Trail of The Hunter", in 2015, as the duo writes the fifth book in the series. They've also written a screenplay based on their first book, self-published several short stories, and have more writing projects in the works. They are from Beaufort, South Carolina, and can be followed on their website www.jandcwordsmiths.com.
