Last Updated: Nov 1, 2013
The purpose of this LibGuide is to provide resources about Chadwick's 2012/13 One Book/One Chadwick selection, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba.
The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is the true story of William Kamkwamba, who built homemade windmills to bring water and electricity to his hometown in Malawi. The book is inspiring and teaches us that we can overcome odds, and naysayers, if we work hard and think creatively.
