Illiterate at 96, author at 98.


The story isn't that Jim Henry is 98; the story is that he was illiterate until he was 96.

"I couldn’t read, I couldn’t write," Henry said.

Now, Henry is an author. His book: "In a Fisherman's Language."

The lifelong lobsterman kept his secret until he moved to a senior home in Connecticut.

Is this what it takes to publish a successful book? Wait until you're in your 90s? What am I supposed to do in the meantime?
