BookTalkers discussion group meets at 6:00pm in the Armstrong Conference Room

Mike May spent his life crashing through. Blinded at age three, he defied expectations by breaking world records in downhill speed skiing, joining the CIA, and becominig a successful inventor, entrepreneur, and family man. He had never yearned for vision. Then, in 1999, a chance encounter brought startling news: a revolutionary stem cell transplant surgery could restore May’s vision. The proecedure was filled with gambles, some of them deadly, others beyond May’s wildest dreams. In recounting this true story, author Robert Kurson gives us a fascinating account of one man’s choice to explore what it means to see-and to truly live.
