League of Women Voters, Wichita Public Library present 2022 book club

Join Kelly Rawlings (Adams) in the discussion of the autobiography by Girma Haben, “The deaf-blind Woman who Conquered Harvard Law” at 6:30 p.m. April 14 at the Advanced Learning Library.

Born with deaf-blindness, Girma grew up with enough vision to know when someone was in front of her and enough hearing to know when someone close to her was talking. However, she had difficulty reading facial features or distinguishing people in group conversations. Relying on her own problem-solving skills, Girma overcame roadblocks, while simultaneously obtaining her undergraduate and then a law degree.
