Dave Steele is bringing his first U.S. book tour to Providence, Rhode Island. This is your opportunity to meet the inspirational, prolific, blind author of more than 700 poems and songs dealing with the fears and struggles associated with vision loss. Listen as Dave describes the frustration of losing his sight and livelihood to the ravages of the genetic eye disease Retinitis Pigmentosa. Hear the poetry that became his therapy, won worldwide acclaim, and became the number one best-selling poetry series on three continents. Reserve your space now to meet this award-winning poet, author, and advocate for the blind. You will walk away sharing his mission to help those isolated by vision loss, to let them know they are not alone.

This event is free and open to the public. Register by October 25, 2019
