February 2: Demonstration of Low Vision Computer

Monday, February 2nd - 10:30-10:45 am & 2:00-2:15 pm at Lake Oswego Library

To encourage empathetic experience with the book’s blind character Marie-Laure, we will be giving a demonstration of the Low Vision/Blind computer upstairs in the Lake Oswego Library.

What would be her experience of this place of wonder? Certainly many of our sensations would be the same: the smell of old and new books, the soft odor of book dust, the sounds of whispers and the thump of footsteps on the stairs.  Although we can never really understand what it is like to live with blindness, we can make our minds receptive to general impressions of this life and develop compassion and understanding.
