The Clearview Library District and the Clearview Library District Friends and Foundation will host New York Times bestselling author William Kamkwamba as part of the Clearview Reads series on Saturday, Feb. 22, at Windsor High School.

The author talk with Kamkwamba will begin at 6:45 p.m. in the auditorium with a book signing immediately following.

Tickets are $5 for the author talk, which can be purchased below. Proceeds benefit the Friends and Foundation’s Clearview Reads fund.

In addition to being a best-selling author, Kamkwamba is a speaker, innovator, TED Fellow, IDEO.org Global Fellow, and co-founder of the Moving Windmills Project.

Kamkwamba’s amazing journey to achieve his dream of bringing electricity, light, and the promise of a better life to his family in Malawi is captured in the memoir “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: Creating Currents of Electricity and Hope,” co-authored with Bryan Mealer. Seemingly against all odds, he constructed a windmill from scraps to bring lighting to his family’s home.

This event is sponsored by Bank of Colorado, CPP Wind Engineering and Air Quality Consultants, Fransen Pittman, and RE/MAX (Dennis Schick, John Taylor, and Stephanie Woodward).
