The upcoming memoir, by Laurie Rubin, takes a look at her life as an international opera singer who happens to be blind. From her loneliness and isolation as a middle schooler to her experiences skiing, Rubin offers her young readers a life-story rich in detail and inspiration drawn from everyday challenges. Colors, Laurie Rubin tells us, affect everyone through sound, smell, taste, and a vast array of emotions and atmospheres.
