Description

Despite the fact that scarlet fever rendered Helen Keller deaf, blind, and mute when she was only 19 months old, she grew into a prolific and opinionated writer in her adulthood. A poetic pacifist, Keller wrote extensively on issues of social justice and morality with boundless optimism. The inspirational story of her life and letters regarding the beauty and light she found in her dark world is guaranteed to inspire a sense of wonder and hope.

The author

Helen Keller (1880-1968) was the author of 13 books and countless articles. She graduated cum laude from Radcliffe College in 1904 and proceeded to spread awareness for the disabled as well as being an outspoken suffragist, pacifist, and socialist.
