TWO AUTHORS LOOK AT THE LIFE OF HELEN KELLER

I don’t know if you’ve read Deborah Hopkinton’s wonderful new book, Annie and Helen, illustrated by Raul Colon, and published by Schwartz & Wade. I always tell children that everyone is unique and every writer is unique, and we write differently because we are different. Deborah Hopkinton and I love to write about history. When we decided to write about Helen Keller, we took different approaches. Click below and you’ll find out how each of us made our decisions on what and how to write about that amazing woman.
