Fingers That Tickle and Delight

Fingers That Tickle and Delight

"Highly Recommended! Sit back and enjoy Evelyn Zola, who shares her memories of childhood, school, marriage; also her career as a teacher and interpreter trainer and later as an entertainer. With her striking talent for storytelling, her delightful presentation is full of insight and humor. Great for parents, deaf students, interpreter training programs, and deaf studies." -Booklist
"Highly Recommended! As a teacher, interpreter trainer, and on-stage performer, Zola offers the viewer a multidimensional perspective of a deaf woman's life of sadness, confusion, joy, belonging and nationally recognized achievement." -Jill Ellis, C.E.I.D.
