Memories of the Moorish World and Beyond (Trafford $19.95)
Milton did it. So did Quaker novelist Hubert Evans. And so has the Marjorie G. Harris.
They all overcame blindness to write books late in life.
Harris bought her first computer at age 89—and took a year to memorize the keyboard.
Undeterred, the blind Kerrisdale self-publisher has found a packager on the internet for Memories of the Moorish World and Beyond (Trafford $19.95).
It’s a memoir of a round-the-world trip she made in 1969 and it’s available from Hager Books in Vancouver.
At 92, Harris is planning on making four more books. 604-264-9456; 1-55212419-3
