Internationally acclaimed mezzo soprano, Laurie Rubin, shares that colours affect everyone through sound, smell, taste and a vast array of emotions and atmospheres. Rubin has experienced colour all her life, in spite of the fact that she has been blind since birth. In Rubin's inspiring memoir, she looks back on the loneliness and isolation of being a blind teenager in Southern California and the amazing life experiences that led to her career as a renowned solo and opera performer. Rubin's story is one of overcoming life's struggles - no matter how impossible they seem.

display_description Colors, Rubin tells us, affect everyone through sound, smell, taste, and a vast array of emotions and atmospheres. She explains that although she has been blind since birth, she has experienced color all her life. In her memoir "Do You Dream in Color?," Laurie Rubin looks back on her life as an international opera singer who happens to be blind. From her loneliness and isolation as a middle school student to her experiences skiing, Rubin offers her young readers a life-story rich in detail and inspiration drawn from everyday challenges. Beginning with her childhood in California, Rubin tells the story of her life and the amazing experiences that led her to a career as an internationally celebrated mezzo-soprano. Rubin describes her past as a "journey towards identity," one she hopes will resonate with young people struggling with two fundamental questions: "Who am I?" and "Where do I fit in?" Although most of us aren't blind, Rubin believes that many of us have traits that make us something other than "normal." These differences, like blindness, may seem like barriers, but for the strong and the persistent, dreams can overcome barriers, no matter how large they may seem. This is what makes her story so unique yet universal and so important for young readers.
