Author, Beth Finke headlines Max & Benn’y Author Night Sept. 16

Beth Finke met her husband in journalism school, and both planned on long careers as newspaper reporters. But then the spots showed up. A year later, at age 26, Beth was blind.

The Americans with Disabilities Act had not been passed yet, and Beth’s career path took some major detours –including a long stint working as a nude model for university art students. Her persistence paid off, though.

The recipient of a writing fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, Beth is the author of three published books. Her radio essays air on NPR, and her writing appears everywhere from Cheryl Sandberg’s OptionB to Hollywood’s Variety Magazine. The Lisagor Award she won for a 2005 essay she recorded about the World Champion White Sox put her in a class of her own: she is the only blind woman in America to win an award for sports Broadcasting.
