Sally Hobart Alexander Books & Biography


When Sally Hobart Alexander was 24 years old, she first noticed a black line flit across her field of vision—the first sign of a retinal problem that left her completely blind. She rose to the challenge of her new life, learning Braille and the life skills to adapt to her blindness and began teaching those same skills to other blind people. Now she gives speeches, leads writing workshops for children, and writes books for children and adults, including She Touched the World: Laura Bridgman, Deaf-Blind Pioneer, a biography for young readers, and two autobiographical books. She lives in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
