The Julia Segar Book Club – Launch of The Child Who Spoke With Her Eyes by Sue Stern

The Julia Segar Book Club Launch of The Child Who Spoke With Her Eyes by Sue Stern In July 1967, Sue and Sid Stern learn that their beautiful baby has cerebral palsy and will be ‘profoundly mentally and physically handicapped.’ They are stunned, heartbroken. Determined to help her grow and develop like any child, Sue works intensively to teach their tiny daughter while Sid builds necessary equipment and provides constant emotional support. Yet Vanessa’s arrival gives Sue the meaning and purpose she’s long been seeking. Her very existence sparks in Sue a newfound desire to explore her Jewish roots – which offer her remarkable insights into their lives together.
