Laurie Rubin, acclaimed mezzo–soprano and author of Do You Dream of Color? Insights from a Girl Without Sight, will be at the Free Library of Philadelphia Tuesday, March 19th at 7:30pm.
Rubin describes her past as a “journey towards identity,” one she hopes will resonate with young people struggling with two fundamental questions: “Who am I?” and “Where do I fit in?” Although most of us aren’t blind, Rubin believes that many of us have traits that make us something other than “normal.” These differences, like blindness, may seem like barriers but for the strong and the persistent, dreams can overcome barriers, no matter how large they may seem. This is what makes her story so unique yet universal and so important for young readers.
