Helen Keller: Her Life in Pictures

By George Sullivan

2007. Scholastic

Available in braille or electronic formats from the following sources:

1. National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped (NLS)

2. Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic (RFB&D)
free to members

The fascinating life of one of the most popular historical figures is told through images -- most rarely, if ever, seen -- from the American Foundation for the Blind and The Perkins School for the Blind. The images trace Keller's life from birth, to childhood with Annie Sullivan in the cottage, to college, and on to her many years as a dedicated social activist and spokesperson. We get a glimpse of her sense of humor, her experiences as a lecturer on the vaudeville circuit, her many pets, and her last quiet years in Connecticut.

Talk about Helen Keller: Her Life in Pictures on the Braille Bug Message Boards.
