The Bennington Historical Society presents
Anne Sullivan with Phyllis Chapman
Anne Sullivan was teacher and mentor to Helen Keller for many years. Legally blind, Sullivan took on the task of teaching a very young deaf and blind child to read and write braille as well as how to interact socially. In this program, Ms. Chapman presents the life story of Ms. Sullivan while engaging the audience in the discussion. Phyllis Chapman is the director of Vintage Visitors Presentations.
All programs of the Historical Society are free and open to the public. The Bennington Historical Society is a volunteer-run program of Bennington Museum.
