Lynne Kelly - Song for a Whale

Upcoming Event
Tuesday, February 5, 2019 - 10:30am

Twelve-year-old Iris is an electronics whiz—she’s always felt happiest when she’s tinkering with wires and vacuum tubes. School, on the other hand, has never been as fun. Being Deaf doesn’t slow her down, but being the only Deaf student in her classes makes it hard to communicate with her peers and teachers. But one day, Iris learns about Blue 55, the loneliest whale in the world, who sings at a frequency unintelligible to all other whales and is doomed to swim companionless as a result. Iris immediately feels connected to the creature, and hatches a plan to create a song that Blue 55 can hear and know that he’s not alone. With her Deaf grandmother by her side, Iris sets out on a road trip to Alaska, to find Blue 55 and play her song. Ages 8-12.

This event is free to attend and open to the public, however, reservations are required for school groups interested in attending. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis.
