Going to school and making new friends can be tough. But going to school and making new friends while wearing a bulky hearing aid strapped to your chest? That requires superpowers! In this funny, poignant graphic novel memoir, author/illustrator Cece Bell chronicles her hearing loss at a young age and her subsequent experiences with the Phonic Ear, a very powerful—and very awkward—hearing aid.

The Phonic Ear gives Cece the ability to hear—sometimes things she shouldnt—but also isolates her from her classmates. She really just wants to fit in and find a true friend. After some trouble, she is finally able to harness the power of the Phonic Ear and become El Deafo, Listener for All, and more importantly, declare a place for herself in the world and find the friend shes longed for.

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

Sunday • May 26 • 3pm

U District store

Join the Murder & Mayhem book club for a lively discussion of this month's book!

This is the story that made Agatha Christie famous. The wealthy Mrs. Farrars is found dead of an apparent overdose, one year after the death of her husband. The villagers of King's Abbot are suspicious, for local rumor has it that she poisoned her husband and was in love with Roger Ackroyd. Was it suicide, brought on by a guilty conscience, or could she have been murdered? When Ackroyd is found stabbed to death the following day, there is little to go on.

Anyone in the house could be the culprit—Ackroyd's niece, Flora; Raymond, Ackroyd's secretary; or even Parker, the butler. The prime suspect, however, is Roger Ackroyd's stepson, Paton, who has disappeared and is known to have gambling debts. Luckily, one of the newest residents of King's Abbott, who has retired to the village to cultivate marrows, is none other than the redoubtable Monsieur Hercule Poirot. . .
