Event Details

Join us for the book launch of Painting Bridges, a debut novel by Cleveland author, Patricia Averbach.

Enjoy complimentary appetizers and wine on Nighttown's patio. Be the first to hear an excerpt from Painting Bridges accompanied by a theatrical reading by an interpreter for the deaf.

This is a free event. All readers and writers are welcome to attend.

           Painting Bridges is a lovely exploration of the ways we grieve, and the ways we heal.           

Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle and The Obituary Writer

Samantha doesn’t want to talk to anyone until her life is turned up-side-down by a young deaf girl who can’t talk at all. Patricia Averbach finds just the right details to pull us into Samantha’s world that bridges Cleveland and rural Catawba County. Painting Bridges is an intimate, in-depth look at how we can climb out of the depth of loss to experience the world anew.  

Sarah Willis, author of Some Things That Stay and The Sound of Us

Pat Averbach's Painting Bridges is a graceful debut novel of grief and redemption. Part memorial, part love story, part coming-into-one's-own, it is a classic narrative that reaches out to every kind of reader.

Liz Rosenberg, author of The Laws of Gravity and Home Repair

            Painting Bridges presents a sensitive and accurate depiction of the 1970s,  a time when late identification of deafness was the norm, amplification equipment was rudimentary, and deaf educators were at war with one another in pursuit of parents' hearts and minds. Patricia Averbach has written a great historical novel documenting a contentious period in deaf education.

             Beverly A. Goldstein, Ph.D Audiology
