There’s an exciting dining experience coming up in Boston to benefit braille literacy, the second annual Tasting with a Twist, at the Hampshire House on April 26 at 6 p.m. A braille reader guides guests through an interactive dinner with multiple courses as they use aroma, texture and taste to explore the evening’s menu blindfolded. It’s truly an unforgettable sensory dining experience to support the National Braille Press in their production of braille materials for the blind and visually impaired.
Braille books cost three to five times more to make than print books found in mainstream bookstores and online retailers. NBP is dedicated to ensuring equal access to books, educational materials, and technology guides by providing these materials at the same price as their print counterparts. NBP, the premier braille publisher, sparks and supports a lifetime of opportunity for blind children through braille literacy and provides access to information that empowers blind people to actively engage in work, family, and community affairs. Hear more about the Tasting with a Twist event as O’Neill and Associates SVP Ann Murphy talks to Joe Quintanilla of the National Braille Press.
