Join us in welcoming Brattleboro's Alison Taylor and Neil Taylor to our store where they will be discussing their memoir The Life We Got: Losing Sight and Gaining Wisdom.
Neil Taylor was a young teacher and athlete when the discovery of a brain tumor catapulted him into a life of blindness. With his dreams shattered and the future uncertain he began, with unwavering support from his family, one step at a time, rebuilding a life worth living and worth celebrating. A monumental step in his journey toward acceptance and wholeness was the writing of this memoir with his mother Alison. Told from both of their perspectives, their account is a road map of one family's journey in the face of trauma.
Neil Taylor is a massage therapist and owner of The Blind Masseur, in Brattleboro, Vermont.
Alison Taylor is a former elementary school teacher and long-time yoga practitioner. She lives in Brattleboro, Vermont.
