Actress Marlee Matlin joins Illinois Libraries Present in celebration of Deaf Awareness Month.

Marlee Matlin shares 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.
