Helen Keller (by Kate Twitchell King)

Her Half of History

Today’s episode is by guest writer Kate Twitchell King, who researched Helen Keller, a deaf-blind American, born in 1880. There are many books, many films, and many TV shows about her, especially about her early childhood, but this is the story of what happened after her extraordinary breakthrough with her teacher Anne Sullivan.

I am still on research break (series 11 on the history of girlhood is coming soon).
