Literary Tea with Kimberly Elkins

Historic Bostonian Novelist

Sunday, December 7, 2014 at 2:00 pm

Fairmont Copley Plaza
138 Dartmouth Street, Boston, Massachusetts

Purchase Tickets by midnight on Tuesday, December 2


A vividly original novel based on the astounding true-life story of Laura Bridgman, the first deaf and blind person who learned language and blazed a trail for Helen Keller. At age two, Laura Bridgman lost four of her five senses to scarlet fever. At age seven, she was taken to Perkins Institute in Boston to determine if a child so terribly afflicted could be taught. At age twelve, Charles Dickens declared her his prime interest for visiting America. And by age twenty, she was considered the nineteenth century’s second most famous woman, having mastered language and charmed the world with her brilliance.
