Descrizione prodotto


The day Archie lost his thirty-one year job as a laborer at a meat packing company, he was forced to confront the secret he had held so closely for most of his life: at the age of fifty-four, he couldn t read. For all his adult life, he'd been able to skirt around the issue. But now, forced to find a new job to support his family, he could no longer hide from the truth. The Last Reader Standing is the story of Archie's amazing and often painful journey of becoming literate at middle age, struggling with the newfound knowledge of his dyslexia. From the little boy who was banished to the back of the classroom because the teachers labeled him stupid, Archie emerged to becoming a national figure who continues to enlighten professionals into the world of the learning disabled. He joined Barbara Bush on stage for her Literacy Foundation's fundraisers where she proudly introduced him as the man who took advantage of a second chance and improved his life. This is a touching and poignant story that gives us an eye-opening view of the lack of literacy in our society, and how important it is for all of us to have opportunity to become all that we can be to have hope and go after our dreams.

I and I am sure the rest of our "49er" class is very proud of Archie. I can hardly wait for the book. We were classmates and Archie was a football player and was active in most anything available in school. What a great guy. Because of his life and book Archie has put our class on top of the Eagle Grove High School.

I enjoyed his recollections of his school days which made it more personable. Going through high school with Archie Willard I did not know the difficulties he was having. He is a tremendous, enjoyable person and I consider him a good friend.
