- Jeanne Mansfield, Author -
Jeanne Mansfield has a life-long love of books. While volunteering for Goodwill-Suncoast's Children's Literacy Program, BookWorks, she found a book for children written in Braille. This sparked the idea for I Talk With My Hands, a book for both deaf and hearing children. She has written and self-published two toddlers' books. They are interactive, colorful, humorous, and educational. Jeanne feels introducing children to books at an early age is vital.
