Whether it's attending a gala featuring comedians such as Jay Leno or Howie Mandel or running in the most extraordinary road race of your life, National Braille Press has an event for you! Here are some of the ways you can have fun while making a difference!
Rescheduled: Thursday, January 18th! National Braille Press and BikeBus are partnering again in 2018 to raise awareness and funds for literacy for blind children and adults — all made possible by the creator of the self-named code, Louis. NBP's Braille Bikers can embark on a fun, 45-minute workout while traveling on a bus through the streets of Boston, or plan their own route and cycle, tandem or stationary bike on their own — all while raising money that will put braille books into the hands of blind children!

Recognizing 90 years of producing braille
and funding literacy programs for blind kids.
On April 27th, guests at our 90 Years, 9 Plates event enjoyed a unique blindfolded dining experience. They filled the room with oohs, aahs, and gasps of surprise as braille reader Tanja led them through nine mystery courses. As they tasted each dish, attendees shouted out reactions and guessed at what they were tasting.
It was a true pleasure to slow down and savor every aspect of the dining experience with senses other than sight. We thank Hampshire House for the specially designed menu and the wonderful food plates created and prepared by Chef Marcus. April 27th was truly an evening of food and fun for a great cause — braille literacy!
