–          Helen Keller (June 27, 1880 – June 01, 1968)

–          Helen Keller’s The Story of My Life

The Story of My Life is Helen Keller’s account of her triumph over deafness and blindness. Popularized by the movie The Miracle Worker, Keller’s story has become a symbol of hope for people all over the world. This book was published when Keller was only twenty-two. She portrays the wild child who is locked in the dark and silent prison of her own body. With an extraordinary immediacy, Keller reveals her frustrations and rage, and takes the reader on the unforgettable journey of her education and breakthroughs into the world of communication. From the moment Keller recognizes the word “water” when her teacher finger-spells the letters, we share her triumph as ‘that living word awakened my soul, gave it light, hope, joy, set it free!’ An unparalleled chronicle of courage, The Story of My Life remains startlingly fresh and vital more than a century after its first publication, a timeless testament to an indomitable will.
