The American School for the Deaf and The MTH&M join to welcome The New York Times bestselling author Max Wallace discussing After the Miracle with ASD Director of Diversity & Special Programs Shana Gibbs. This virtual discussion will be presented via Zoom with American Sign Language interpretation and closed captioning.
In this first major biography of Helen Keller in decades, Wallace draws on groundbreaking research to reframe Keller’s journey after the miracle at the water pump. Most mainstream portrayals of Keller made her a secondary character in her own story. After the Miracle is a much-needed corrective to this antiquated narrative. Peeling back the curtain that obscured Keller’s political crusades in favor of her “inspirational” childhood, After the Miracle chronicles the complete legacy of one of the 20th century’s most extraordinary figures.
