Great Summer Read for you and your students, clients, and consumers. The title is called Lessons I learned in the Dark by Judith Rothschild. The story is an autobiography of her life after she became visually impaired with all that she encountered through adolescence, college, and becoming a wife and mom. You can order on-line through her website.
Very inspirational!
