Sharon Donovan: Transforming A LIFE

Thursday, August 19 at 7:00 P.M.

Due to a childhood illness, Pittsburgh author Sharon Donovan was told by doctors that she would be blind by age 25. She had a career as a secretary for the Court of Common Pleas, but that work and her lifelong ambition to become an artist were thwarted by the doctors' prediction and she gradually lost her sight after many surgeries. Channeling her creative talents into new outlets, Sharon took writing classes and went to workshops and conferences to hone her skills. Using a talking computer, she began writing her own story as an inspiration to others who suffer loss of sight. Today she is the author of books of inspiration and books of suspense. Join us on the 19th to hear Sharon Donovan's inspiring story. Her books will be available for purchase by those who are interested.
