Margalit Fox - Talking Hands: What Sign Language Reveals about the Mind

Tuesday, October 23(7:00 p.m.)--Free Library of Philadelphia Author Series

Margalit Fox, a New York Times journalist trained as a linguist, accompanied a
team of researchers to a remote Bedouin village in Israel, where a remarkable
sign language arose that is used by deaf and hearing villagers alike. Talking
Hands transports  readers to an exotic place to illuminate a family of
languages largely overlooked by science, while providing an extraordinary
window into how all human language works inside the mind.
