|The Center for Cartoon Studies presents a wholly original take on the story of Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller in the fifth book of the award-winning series of graphic novel biographies.|
From the Publisher:
Physical abuse. Lavish parties. Scandal. Media scrutiny. The story of Annie Sullivan and Helen Keller has been told many times over, but never quite like this. In Annie Sullivan and the Trials of Helen Keller, the reader is brought into the Keller household to witness the education of Helen in Annie's determined and firm hands. But they also learn about Annie's troubled upbringing, Helen's meteoric rise to fame, and the plagiarism charge that threatened to destroy both of their reputations and undermine everything that they had accomplished.
With imaginative use of color and abstract forms, author/illustrator Joseph Lambert attempts to convey how Helen saw the world. He also digs deep into Annie's history to better understand her drive and commitment. The result is an inspiring, emotional, and wholly original take on the story of these two great Americans.
