In this new edition of our Foreword! series of author happenings, Ashley Mayne will be hosting with Andrew Leland as they discuss his most recent work, “The Country of the Blind: A Memoir at the End of Sight”, which was inspired by his degenerative eye condition. Leland takes fascinating dips into everything from the development of Braille to the history of the blind civil rights movement – with cameos by James Joyce, Jorge Luis Borges and Henri Matisse.
