Nonfiction Book Club @ the BFL

September 24, 2022 at 10:00 am - 11:00 am

This month, the Bacon Free Library nonfiction book club will discuss The Boy who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer.

As a young boy in Malawai, William Kamkwamba read about windmills and dreamed of building one that would bring electricity and water to his village. Despite famine and poverty, William persevered to do just that.  In The Boy who Harnessed the Wind, Kamkwamba and Mealer tell this remarkable story about human inventiveness and its power to overcome crippling adversity.

Copies of this book are available at the library.

Our discussion will be held in a hybrid format.  The host will be in person at the BFL, while some members will join over zoom.  You are welcome to join either way.  For zoom, please register on the BFL website to receive the meeting details.
