A Conversation with Marlee Matlin: From Oscar to West Wing and Beyond

Wednesday, September 14

In celebration of Deaf Awareness Month, Marlee Matlin joins Illinois Libraries Present to share the highs and lows of her Hollywood career and journeys as an activist. The youngest recipient of the Best Actress Oscar, Matlin’s acting career recently achieved another milestone as her 2021 film CODA swept every category it was nominated in at the 2022 Academy Awards. 

A longtime advocate for deaf rights, Matlin continues to break down barriers for herself and others through her acting, awareness, and writing. As she has so aptly stated, “The only thing I can’t do is hear. The rest is there for the taking.”

Register for this inspiring conversation HERE.

This program will be offered in ASL and translated through an interpreter. 

This event is made possible by Illinois Libraries Present
