Author Bio: Katherine Bouton

When this week's author, Katherine Bouton, was 30 years old, she began to lose her hearing and she didn't know why. It was progressive hearing loss, and she was profoundly deaf in one ear with severe hearing loss in the other ear by the time she turned 60.

After trying to deal with hearing loss for about a decade, Bouton thought about writing a book about the ordeal. She wrote Shouting Won't Help: Why I - and 50 Million Other Americans - Can't Hear You in the hopes that it would help people dealing with their own hearing loss and/or the hearing loss of loved ones.

Bouton does interviews and other events, which you can keep track of at her website.
