|Signing in Puerto Rican|
From Reference & Research Book News
Torres (Puerto Rican studies, Hunter College, New York City) remembers his childhood in New York City, describing both the internal dynamics of the family — he and his two deaf parents — and interactions with the deaf community, the New York Puerto Rican community, and U.S. society as a whole. Both his parents were stalwarts in the Puerto Rican Society for the Catholic Deaf. Among his topics are a signing village, observing and learning, family truths, the whole world watching, God and marriage, a garden, and border crossings.
Andrés Torres is visiting distinguished lecturer in the Department of Latin American and Puerto Rican Studies at Lehman College, City University of New York.
