Open Door Series: Spin Cycles and The Transcriber




"Brilliant, homeless and nearly invisible, a young man wanders through Boston, looking for meaning and hope. Extreme mood swings and an unusual outlook on life make it impossible for him to thrive in mainstream society. He finds comfort in laundromats, where he calms himself by watching clothes tumble round and round. And in the streets he finds other people like himself, beyond the radar, laboring to survive." Spin Cycles is a story of loss, discovery, and redemption. This short novel - part of the Open Door Series designed for young adult and adult literacy learners - is written by acclaimed author and poet, Charles Coe, who was selected as a "Boston Literary Light for 2014." Poignant, beautiful and thought-provoking. Highly recommended.


"Louis's sister, Emily, is blind. She's also in the marching band, gets great grades, sculpts in clay, and has the biggest bedroom in the house to accommodate her Braille machine. Everyone thinks Emily's accomplishments are extraordinary, and most think that she can do no wrong. The single person who doesn't feel awe-or pity-for her is Louis. He wishes people would just stop comparing the two of them. Louis wants his own life." The Transcriber explores the power of sibling rivalry... and of reconciliation. This short novel is authored by Kristen Witucki, who has been totally blind since birth. She has earned multiple degrees including an MFA from Sarah Lawrence College, and is currently working on a project to help college students who are blind or visually impaired.
