In this episode, Rich has a conversation with Marlene Shipley Everhardt.
Step into the world of Marlene Shipley Everhardt, a Maryland native hailing from the illustrious Bel Air. Marlene's incredible journey began with a simple idea, to capture the heartwarming experiences between a deaf grandmother and her hearing grandsons in a children's book. Years later, this idea has blossomed into a sensational series of "Signing Grandma Books," which showcase beautifully illustrated American Sign Language (ASL) signs. Co-authoring the series with her high school friend of 50 years, Pat Goldys, Marlene is thrilled to continue her legacy as a CODA (Child Of Deaf Adults).
When she's not pouring her heart and soul into the books, Marlene can be found lounging on the beach on a sunny day, indulging in her love for literature at bookstores on rainy days, or sipping tea with her closest girlfriends on almost any day. Join Marlene on her journey as she inspires, educates, and delights readers of all ages with her enchanting stories of family, love, and the beauty of American Sign Language.
