Tune Your Engine - Books in Homes

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:09 pm on 22 November 2011

When Ben Carson and his brother were young, their mother turned off the TV and they checked out two books from the library every week. The books turned a boy who was called "dummy" by his classmates into a student, with the magic knowledge that would propel him into life. Dr Carson will be in New Zealand in March to raise money for "Books in Homes" and the Starship Foundation.
