Off to Rochester
Today I'm heading to Rochester, N.Y., to give a talk and workshop on how a deaf guy writes for the "mainstream" (as the hearing world is known in that of the not-hearing). The lecture is to students at the National Technical Institute for the Deaf, one of the colleges at Rochester Institute of Technology.
It'll be the first time I've trod the quarterdeck of a classroom since 1982, when freshmen at Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism made up the boisterous but loyal crew.
This ought to be interesting. Are college students still eager and demanding? Do I still have the chops for teaching?
We will see. Back Saturday.
