Writing Tips: It’s Never Too Late

Meet Captain James Henry, a retired Connecticut lobsterman who, at the age of 98, just published his first book, In A Fisherman’s Language.

Yep, that’s right.

When his granddaughter contacted local Literacy Volunteers, they connected Mr. Henry with Mark Hogan, a retired English teacher.

That connection meant that the life of Mr. Henry would never again be the same. He learned to read and write – and the end result is his autobiography.

Word of the book and Mr. Henry’s personal story made the local news then reached
USA Today.

Now, Mr. Henry is getting speaking requests from groups around the country.

“It’s never too late to learn,” Mr. Henry told USA Today.

And it’s never too late to write – or to change your life.
