Project Description

Another Handful of Stories is the second volume in the Deaf Storytellers Videotape Series. Dr. Roslyn Rosen and Barbara Kannapell were the guiding forces behind the transliteration of this second set of signed stories. Ms. Kannapell recruited the twenty-four deaf individuals who participated in the series. She also served as the videotape coordinator.

The thirty-seven stories in the book are edited versions of the stories on the tapes. They are not exact duplications of the signed stories.

One basic objective of the Deaf Storytellers Series is to promote an appreciation of deaf heritage. Thus, some of the signed and printed stories are based on the personal experiences of the storytellers or on information told to them by other deaf people.
