Over 60 people came to hear Teresa Jordan speak in CWC's Little Theater on April 10, 2008. Many also attended the subsequent pie reception and book signing sponsored by the Friends of the CWC Library.
Jordan, who lives in Salt Lake City, Utah, spoke about learning to speak Spanish and what the processs taught her. She spoke about the language barrier for immigrants and soldiers and how a person's personality changes when he or she is uncomfortable with the language. Jordan also took questions and solicited stories of audience members' experience with language.
Among the comments listed on audience surveys were "TERRIFIC PROGRAM!!" and "EXCELLENT AND ENTERTAINING AS WELL AS THOUGHT PROVOKING."
The program was made possible through a grant from the Wyoming Humanities Council. In addition to speaking at CWC, Jordan spoke at Western Wyoming Community College and both the Powell and Cody branches of the Park County Public Library System.
