It was around 7 p.m., in the midst of the cafe’s regular silent hours. “No talk!” proclaimed the chalkboard in the corner that listed the times when speaking was forbidden. On the walls, cartoon illustrations demonstrated how to sign phrases such as “What would you like to drink?” and “Check, please” in Chinese Sign Language (CSL).
