Friday Fun Link – 100 Year Old Is Poster Boy For Literacy (October 20, 2006)

A 100-year man from Huntsville, Ontario, who only learned to read at age 93, is being called a “poster boy for literacy.”

“In
an emotional acceptance speech, after which he received a standing
ovation, Brazier said he decided to learn to read after his wife of 64
years died. She had read everything to him.”

The man was one of many winners in this year’s annual Canada Post Literacy Awards.

(Thanks to Karina for the tip.)
