  • Suzi Love

    Charles Lamb (1775-1834) was an English writer. At the age of 21, he took care of his mentally-ill sister after she killed their mother. He understood that she could not help it and refused to follow his brother’s advice of putting her in a public mental institute, he took individual action to care for her in the best way possible by using a huge amount of his income to keep her in private care. They co wrote children books together. One of their most famous books is Tales from Shakespeare.
