Politician. Comedian. Actor. Counselor. Father. 


How does someone go from being a young child at a strict school to being a successful politician?  Kevin J. Nolan Sr. the nation’s first born-deaf city councilor and one of the nation’s first deaf people to serve on a jury, shares an entertaining narrative that explores the highs and lows of his life.


 


Kevin attended a private school for deaf students where he used his keen sense of humor to entertain others in an era when use of sign language was prohibited on campus.  At home, Kevin was frustrated by his family’s continued denial of his being deaf. Lonely, he often ached to return to school where he could communicate with friends who were like siblings.
