Imagine… advancing through school hiding the fact that you don’t know how to read. This week on the Down East Journal, we speak with a New Bern man who read his first book at age 48, and has since published two books. On this week’s program, he shares his passion to support literacy in eastern North Carolina. Listen for the Down East Journal, Friday at noon on PRE, Public Radio East.
