The Kickoff for Braille Readers Are Leaders is coming up on November 14,
2009. See the announcement below. I am excited about the events which are
planned. If you are planning on coming please contact me so I can talk to
you about helping. I can be contacted at cane.travel at gmail.com or at
dmackenstadt at comcast.net . We need blind people to man the stations for the
braille carnival, to register participants and to act as braille mentors for
the contest participants. Many blind students do not know any other braille
readers to share with. As braille users we can bring to these children a
unique perspective. In addition, we can bring to parents a resource for
encouraging reading for their children. I want to announce also that David
Patneaude, a nationally recognized author of juvenile literature will be a
special guest. He is a local author and his books are available in braille.
Let us have a good showing.
