For most of us, global literacy is a noble goal. For John Wood, it became a life mission. In 1999, he left his lucrative job at Microsoft to bring books and reading to places where they had rarely gone before. To date, his success has been nothing less than dizzying: His Room to Red nonprofit organization will open 10,000 school libraries within the next decade, provided 17,000 scholarships for women, published more than 700 books in regional languages, and partnered with local communities on two continents to create schools. In Creating Room to Read, he shares his incredible story and provides ways that we can all help to bring the good news to new places.
