WE HOPE TO RESCHEDULE IN THE FALL.
Sofia Sees Hope presents “A Rare Opportunity: Kody Keplinger,” New York Times bestselling author who lives with Leber congenital amaurosis.
Kody Keplinger was born and raised in small town western Kentucky, where she began her writing career after penning The New York Times bestseller, The DUFF, at age 17. Kody has Leber congenital amaurosis (LCA), a rare inherited retinal disease (IRD) that causes low vision or blindness, typically from birth. Join us as Kody reads from her new book, talks about her writing process and her life as a “confident and proud disabled woman,” and signs copies of her book.
She is the author of nine novels, including her newest, LILA AND HADLEY, about a teenage girl who is losing her vision due to retinitis pigmentosa, another IRD.
“A former Kentuckian and legally blind, Keplinger knows this territory, literal and figurative, inside out. A funny, moving tale, at once unsparingly realistic and upbeat.” ~ Kirkus Reviews
