Creating Room to Read: A Story of hope in the Battle for Global Literacy by John Wood [Surani, Waitakere Central library]
John begins this memoir by recounting the opening ceremony of the 10,000th library the organisation helped build!! His story is delivered in a very simple voice that is all his own.
This book was an eye-opener for me since I carved a love for reading from a very young age thanks to my equally book-loving parents who went to every extreme to provide me with books of all size and shape that fuelled my imagination. To learn that almost two-thirds of our world is illiterate was astonishing!!
I urge everyone who loves reading as much as I do to check out both of John Wood's books and make a difference in the world!
