The Blind Porcupine Play – June 9, 2011

Presented by the Michigan Eye-Bank, in partnership with the EMU Forensics Team and the Lions of Ypsilanti at Eastern Michigan University.

The Blind Porcupine is a play based on the children’s book written and illustrated by award winning authors Madison and Malia. The Blind Porcupine is a heartwarming story about corneal transplantation and the gift of sight from a child’s perspective.  These twin sisters were born blind, and received suitable cornea tissue donors from the Michigan Eye-Bank. Madison and Malia don’t have 20/20 vision; however, as a result of the transplants their sight is restored. The twins wrote the story as a thank you to the Michigan Eye-Bank. View the video below to hear Madison and Malia read their book.

Now the Michigan Eye-Bank and the EMU Forensics team is bringing their story to life on Thursday, June 9th, from 6:30pm-9:30pm. The play will be held at the Eastern Michigan University Student Auditorium at 900 Oakwood St. Ypsilanti, MI.

Tickets are general admission – $6 in advance and $8 at the door. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m., and the play begins at 6:30 p.m., to be followed by refreshments. To purchase advance tickets, call (734) 487-2282 or visit www.emutix.com. Parking will be validated.
