Author Shannon Stocker discusses her new children’s picture book biography, Listen: How Evelyn Glennie, a Deaf Girl, Changed Percussion. This project is near and dear to Shannon’s heart. Evelyn Glennie began learning music as a small child. She also began to lose her hearing starting at age 8, but her profound hearing loss did not keep her from continuing to play. Shannon’s new book, Listen, is the story of Evelyn Glennie, a deaf woman who became the first full-time solo percussionist in the world.
