Book Title: Beneath The Surface: Creative Expressions of Augmented Communicators

Author: Michael B. Williams and Carole J. Krezman, editors

Book Description:

This book is a collection of creative works: paintings, drawings, poetry, stories, plays, and essays. None of the artists are able to use speech, but instead use assistive technology to communicate. The book is a wonderful exploration of creativity, as well as a reminder that inside, where our dreams and feelings lie, we are all the same. I chose to include this in the collection, because it is a combination of my professional life, where my research interests are, and my private passion of "reading for pleasure."
