Braille & Talking Book Library
Governor Deval Patrick Visits Perkins
Thursday, January 24, 2013
Governor Patrick visited the Perkins campus after an invitation from the Library's Elder Book Group.
The group read his book, A Reason to Believe, and were so moved that they wrote a letter to share their thoughts. The Governonr graciously responded to their kind words and was pleased to hear of their shared commitment to community values.
The event was open to the public and drew more than 150 people, including library patrons, Perkins alumni, and Perkins School for the Blind students, teachers and staff.
