Event Details:
Sure, you know about Helen Keller and Louis Braille, but other people who happened to be blind deserve recognition as well. What about Jacques Lusseyran, who worked with the Resistance in France during World War II? Or Morris Frank, who pioneered the use of dogs as guides for the blind in the U.S.? Or the harpist Turlough Carolan, Ireland's national composer? Come learn their stories and why we should remember them. The event is free, but registrations are required. Call 899-2213 by September 19 to register. Best for adults and children age 12 and up.
