Did you know that American sign language is rooted in local origins through locations such as Martha's Vinyard? Manuel Martin of ASL Academy in Rhode Island comes to the Hingham Library to talk about these origins and teach us some basic ASL. You will learn the manual alphabet, learn to spell your name in ASL, counting numbers and more. There will be time for Q&A after the presentation.
