Annotation

What’s it like to have a deaf father? As Conan explains, it’s not so different—but it’s always interesting. Conan tells how his father Henry Kisor learned to read and speak, made his way through “regular” schools, and grew up to be a newspaper editor and author. Conan also describes the challenges of lipreading and the technological advances that have made communication easier for his dad.
