Who is Art Schrieber
During his career ascendancy, he interviewed such notables as John F. Kennedy, Dr.
Martin Luther King, Jr., and the Beatles.
Before moving to New Mexico to manage KOB-AM Radio in Albuquerque, he was general
manager of KFWB-AM in Los Angeles. For several years prior, he ran Westinghouse
Radio’s national and international news service operations in Washington D.C.
His life changed frightfully when he awoke one morning, the last day of his vacation,
at a resort outside Santa Fe. It was so dark. He could not understand why the desk
clerk was calling him in the middle of the night. In fact, it was the morning wake-up
call he had requested the prior evening before he went to bed. And the sun was up!
Only it wasn’t up for Art.
From the successful heights of a radio news broadcasting career, his loss of eyesight
caused him to plunge to the depths of despair. Out of Sight is the inspiring story
of how one person was able to pull himself together and begin a new way of life
in a new world.
As author and former Albuquerque Journal newspaper columnist Jim Belshaw describes it:
“This slim volume contains stories of courage and compassion, illustrating Art Schreiber’s
willingness to reach out to those who have lost their eyesight and say to them:
‘Follow me. I know the road you need to take. I’ll show you how to get there.’ ”
Art is in Tucson at the VA Hospital attending iPhone and computer training for the blind for a few weeks. At this point he doesn't have access to the internet, although he will soon. In the meantime, he will not be able to respond to any messages he receives through his website.
My book, "Out of Sight...Blind but Doing Alright" has been awarded First Place at the Arizona / New Mexico Book Awards. The category: Self Help, Spirituality and Inspirational.
