Sarah Smith World Hearing Day Dennistoun Library

Hear No Evil

Monday, 4 March, 2024, 10.30 a.m. – 12 p.m.

RNID Support Session

Dennistoun Library, 2A Craigpark, Glasgow G31 2NA

Mark World Hearing Day at Dennistoun Library with writer Sarah Smith and RNID. Sarah Smith will be discussing her debut novel Hear No Evil, a historical crime story set in Glasgow and Edinburgh in 1817. Sarah will be answering questions about her book.

In the novel Hear No Evil, Jean Campbell – a young, Deaf woman – is witnessed throwing a child into the River Clyde. If found guilty she faces one of two fates; death by hanging or incarceration in an asylum. But Jean’s deafness leaves her isolated and unable to defend herself, until the authorities call in Robert Kinniburgh, a talented teacher from the Deaf & Dumb Institution.

Through a difficult process of trial and error, Robert and Jean manage to find a way of communicating with each other. And Robert, now embroiled in this dark case, must act quickly to ensure justice is served, before it is too late.

RNID will be launching their new RNID Near You Support Session in Dennistoun Library. On the day, and every month you can come along to receive:

  • A free hearing check
  • Hearing aid maintenance (replacement batteries, cleaning and re-tubing)
  • Information and support for people who are deaf, have hearing loss or tinnitus.
A BSL/English interpreter will be present on the day

Please contact or 0141 287 2903 with any questions.
