Washington State Book Award Winner: Elsa Sjunneson
Winner of the 2022 Washington State Book Award for Biography/Memoir, Being Seen: One Deafblind Woman's Fight to End Ableism is part memoir, part cultural criticism, part history of the Deafblind experience. Being Seen explores how our cultural concept of disability is more myth than fact, and the damage it does to us all.

Sjunneson will read from and discuss Being Seen, and take questions from the audience.

Elsa Sjunneson, seven-time Hugo Award finalist, is a Deafblind speculative fiction writer living in Seattle, Washington. She has been published in CNN Opinion, The Boston Globe, Metro UK, and Tor. Her work has been praised as “eloquence and activism” in lockstep and can be found all over the internet.

The Washington State Book Awards are a partnership of The Washington Center for the Book (an affiliate of The Library of Congress Center for the Book administered by Washington State Library) and The Seattle Public Library.

This event is presented by the Washington Center for the Book (administered by Washington State Library) and the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL). The event is free and will be presented in-person at WTTBL and online via Zoom. Registration is required to receive the event link. The event will be recorded and accessible on Washington State Library’s YouTube channel.
