Abby will produce Little Clerc, a series of American Sign Language (ASL) books for children and parents, aiding in the understanding between hearing and deaf families. This project will put in print what Longo has been teaching at the Expressive Hand, her own ASL studio. As a deaf woman, Abby has faced many adversities and through her books she will hope to create change in a fun and innovative manner.
