Prof. Kim Nielsen’s new book, Beyond the Miracle Worker: The Remarkable Life of Anne Sullivan Macy and Her Extraordinary Friendship with Helen Keller, tells the subject’s story in a new way — by letting Macy define herself. Nielsen shares her strategy in an article now posted on George Mason University’s History News Network’s website. “As I have reconsidered Macy in my new biography … I became convinced that I, and nearly everyone else, had shortchanged the woman known only as the teacher of Helen Keller,” Nielsen writes. “Telling the life story of Anne Sullivan Macy with her as the central figure is a markedly new strategy, and creates a new story.” For more, see: hnn.us/articles/89505.html.
