• One Book, One Firm Lunch-and-Learn Set for June 1

One Book, One FirmJohn McKendryJoin us on Monday, June 1, for an exceptional Lunch-and-Learn presentation.  Warner Norcross partner John McKendry will discuss his experiences as a CODA – a child of deaf adults.  Like Myron Uhlberg, the author of this year’s One Book, One Firm selection, Hands of My Father, John was born to deaf parents.  Uhlberg’s memoir covers his life in the 30s and 40s.  John will bring the story forward a generation and discuss his experiences as a CODA when he was a boy.

 Katie PrinsWe are excited that joining John on the program will be Katie Prins, the Executive Director of Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services, a not-for-profit agency that provides interpreter services, education, information and advocacy to the deaf and hard of hearing community and information and education on deaf-related matters to the hearing community. She will provide us a contemporary perspective on being the deaf child of hearing parents.

John and Katie will be speaking in the University Club in Grand Rapids at noon on June 1.  The program will be broadcast over the Internet to our other offiices.  If you would like to join your Warner colleagues at this Lunch-and-Learn, please RSVP to Robin Keith by Tuesday, May 26.
