Muir Library in Winnebago, MN is planning to read the book “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer for the theme of Transformation. Wind energy has been an important topic in our county in the past couple of years and it is still mentioned in the newspaper frequently. But more than that, I think this book is a good example of someone who was trying to transform himself (educate himself) and “accidentally” transformed his community. In small towns where formal educational opportunities aren’t as robust as other places, it’s hopeful and encouraging to discuss self-motivation and self-directed education.
