Dear Mike,


I'm writing to invite you and your Temple colleague to attend some upcoming disability-related events at Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Swarthmore. I've pasted links to the relevant websites below. The first one is the finalized program for the four-day tri-college conference entitled "Signs and Voices: Language and Identity from Deaf to Hearing." I believe I sent you this link over the summer, but it is now updated and complete. The second link is to the schedule for Disabilities Awareness Week at Haverford; these events begin next Thursday, Nov. 4, and include a demonstration and lecture on assistive technologies.  




Hope your semester is going well!
