‘Now I See You’ author resonates with Vision Loss Resources Crowd

Nicole Kear, author of “Now I See You,” made a heartfelt connection with the crowd at Vision Loss Resources’ afternoon luncheon and book signing on Tuesday. By and large, the crowd knew in advance that Nicole’s acclaimed memoir talked about her life after learning at age 19 that she has retinitis pigmentosa.

That diagnosis gave her an instant connection with the luncheon group. And the connection grew as Nicole talked. Murmurs of understanding and moments of laughter rippled through the crowd as she shared her feelings around the diagnosis, the physical and emotional aspects of living with limited vision, and the fun and adventure that makes her life so full. In fact, “full” might not be a large enough word.

Nicole is a graduate of Yale and Columbia, a blogger, circus contortionist, off-off-Broadway actor, world traveler, wife, mother of three, and book author. (There’s more, but she only had an hour.)

“Now I See You,” resonated deeply with those in the crowd who also live full lives hand-in-hand with their vision loss.

On May 18, 2015, Minnesota Public Radio aired excerpts of Nicole Kear’s presentation, as part of its program “MPR News Presents”.  Listen here.

Nicole Kear capped the afternoon by chatting with the long line of people who queued up to get a signed copy of her book and to speak with her.
