Dave Steele, who is known as ‘The Blind Poet’, will be holding the second in a series of talks with NCBI and you’re invited to join in.

Dave is an award-winning poet, author, speaker, singer and advocate for people wo are blind or vision impaired.  He was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) in 2014.

Steele’s first book, Stand By Me RP Volume 1, was released in February 2016. That same day, he received the call that he had been matched with a guide dog. During its first week, Stand By Me RP Volume 1, went on to become the number 1 poetic release in both America and Australia.

In March of 2016, Dave left his family for 10 days to be trained with his guide dog, Christopher a yellow Labrador retriever. He released his second book, Stand By Me RP Volume 2, in February 2017. It became the number 1 poetry release in Europe within its first day. In February 2018, Steele’s third book, Stand By Me RP Volume 3 was released, completing his trilogy.
