Award-winning author David Wermuth will speak at Harbor Place at Cottesmore of Life Care Center, 1016 29th St. NW in Gig Harbor, at 7:30 a.m. March 11.
Wermuth is the author of “Suddenly Blind,” an autobiography that chronicles his story of child abuse and relationship issues. Wermuth was born in Everett and grew up in an abusive Air Force family. He lost his sight when he was 32 as a result of his father’s actions, and he has worked as a rehabilitation teacher for the blind for several years.
Wermuth speaks at conferences around the country with his wife, Holly, and their guide dogs, Bingo and Oreo.
Copies of the book will be available for sale, and a portion of the proceeds will go to the Gig Harbor Lions Club, which is sponsoring the event. Wermuth will be available for signings.
Breakfast will be offered starting at 7 a.m. For more information, email Bonnie Manning of the Gig Harbor Lions Club at email@example.com.
