Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan

Anne Sullivan Teaches Helen Keller — and Us

December 5 @ 12:15 pm1:00 pm
| Cost: $4 | Cost for Members: $2

Helen Keller’s transformation from a wild, deaf-blind and mute child into a world-recognized force of nature astounded the world. Annie Sullivan was Helen’s teacher and, for nearly fifty years, her companion. Annie’s transformation—from a nearly blind, unwanted child abandoned in a Massachusetts poorhouse to a celebrated miracle worker—is less known. Annie Sullivan, as a teacher and as a person, inspires us. This lecture tells her dramatic story.

Presented by Ted Zalewski, special educator, historian and author
