A Few Moments in Time (2011) is a wistful, emotion-filled memoir of a boyhood and adolescence spent at a Connecticut school for the blind in the 1960s and early ‘70s. The author provides us with a detailed picture of his youthful past, complete with pains and pranks, and then a snapshot of his impressive achievements in adulthood. Honest, funny, informative, and often deeply moving, this is a tale of the triumph of determination over disability. The striking cover photo was taken by a blind student, Matt Langer.
Review quotes: “Howard Geltman allows the reader deep into his soul. He shows us that no matter how difficult the road may be, there is always hope.” “Howard captures a piece of precious time and has told it so well that I felt I was there.” “This special memoir glows with warmth, affection, and compassion.”
