The poet Stephen Kuuisto was born legally blind and was taught to pass as sighted from an early age.

He hid his blindness as best he could for decades until at age 38, when he was let go from his teaching job in a small college town and forced to navigate a new world.

In his new memoir, “Have Dog, Will Travel: A Poet’s Journey,” Stephen Kuusisto looks back on those days when he met his first guide dog, Corky.

The author spoke about his book with “City Lights” host Lois Reitzes.
