Gallaudet University President T. Alan Hurwitz will donate 25 books to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial Library on behalf of an anonymous donor to commemorate deaf history, deaf culture, American Sign Language, and the university's upcoming 150th anniversary.
The event is in celebration of Clerc-Gallaudet Week, honoring Laurent Clerc and Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet who founded the first school for the deaf in America. Gallaudet University was named after Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet.
Following the donation and brief program, editors and contributors of "Deaf American Prose: 1980-2010" will hold a panel discussion and reading.
