Three. Never too late. Once-Illiterate Man Published his Book of Essays at age 93.
The Portuguese-born James Arruda Henry had plenty to be proud of as a U.S. lobster-boat captain who managed to build his own house and raise a family. But he kept a secret into his ’90s, one that forced him to bluff his way through life. Henry was illiterate. He couldn’t even read the restaurant menus. Now he’s 98, and his self-published collection of autobiographical essays is being read at elementary schools. I a fisherman’s language details his barefoot beginnings in Portugal, life in a tenement in Rhode Island, boxing as a young man and his adventures at sea.
