Helen Keller to reappear in Wrentham (almost)

Posted by Ralph Ranalli March 3, 2008 08:42 AM


Children will have the chance to learn about Helen Keller, a one-time Wrentham resident, at a March 18 performance at the Fiske Public Library.

An actor from Historical Perspectives for Children will portray Keller, who went from being unable to speak or communicate to become one of the country's first and most famous advocates for the disabled. Keller lived in Wrentham after graduating from Radcliffe College in 1904 and becoming the first deaf-blind person in the US to earn a bachelor of arts degree.

The 6 p.m. event is free, but canned food donations will be accepted for the Wrentham Food Pantry. Anyone interested in attending is urged to call the library at (508) 384-5440 for more information.
