More than anything else, Louis Braille wanted to read. He could not accept the fact that as a blind boy, in the year 1821, he was unable to communicate by the written word. So each night, in the darkness of his dormitory room, he punched tiny holes in paper. His friends told him he was wasting his time, but Braille’s experiment with dots became a system that, as the plaque on the front of Braille’s house reads, “opened the doors of knowledge to all those who cannot see.” This vivid and highly readable biography by esteemed author Russell Freedman is enhanced by diagrams of the Braille alphabet and evocative drawings by Kate Kiesler.
