Lillian, a reader, and her guide dog Lucy

Lillian, a reader, and her guide dog Lucy

It’s the 200th anniversary of the birth of Louis Braille, who invented a way for the blind to read and write. Genius! Another technology hasn’t replaced Braille for writing–it’s still the standard.  I first met Lillian as a reader who wrote me letters about my books. Last year at a booksigning, we finally got to meet. I know she joins me in saying, Bonne anniversaire, Louis!

what’s on my mind right now:

  • So grateful to Sarah Lane and InsideBainbridge for summarizing our magic weekend with the Bees of Mineral County.... fb.me/7bAUlLxzq 5 hours ago
