#273: Seeing At The Speed Of Sound

The Highlighter
Hi there, loyal readers, and thank you for opening today’s issue of The Highlighter. Are you enjoying an extremely early sunset? (I’m not.) This week’s intriguing lead article, “Seeing At The Speed of Sound,” explores the mysteries of lipreading and the choices Deaf people make to communicate in a hearing world. I think you’re going to like it. The other three pieces are worth your time, too — whether it’s the podcast about homelessness in Oakland, the first-person account of a woman struggling with an eating disorder, or the profile of a 7-year-old student learning to read at a distance. Feel free to reply and share which piece resonates with you. Enjoy!
+ The First Annual Highlighter Game Show is tonight and is officially sold out! Thank you to VIP co-host Joel and loyal readers Shyanna and Omar for our dress rehearsal last night. Next week I’ll update you on who won all the prizes!
+ Be on the lookout next Thursday for the last issue of 2020, which will highlight the best and most popular articles of the year. What’s your vote? Let me know! (Should I give you a prize if you guess correctly?)
