MANA in-Person Publisher’s Seminar

How did Robbie Dean Press, L.L.C. and begin? In 1991 Dr. Fairy C. Hayes-Scott was teaching Deaf college students and was in need of a text that would accommodate her adult Deaf students; it needed to have language that would not be too difficult but not too “babyish.” She began making up sources to help her. Her Deaf students encouraged her to write her own book. With further encouragement of her students and teaching colleagues, she made the decision to write Essential Writing Skills for Deaf Students. Then, a Deaf-Blind teaching colleague approached her to publish her book, Deaf/Blindness: Essential Information for Families, Professionals, and Students.. And so, this was the beginning of Robbie Dean Press (RDP). Then, other persons asked RDP to publish their work. Others wanted RDP marketing services but not be published by a traditional textbook publisher. So, in 2002, (MANA), the self-publishing arm of the parent company, RDP, began. That is the brief history of RDP and MANA.
