The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind

In conjuction with the Columbia County Libraries Association (CCLA) 2023  Columbia County Community Read, the Crandell will host a screening of The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, based on this year’s selected book by William Kamkwamba. The book and film tell the true story of a young Malawi boy who, after seeing an example in a library book, taught himself how to construct a windmill to generate electricity and pump water to save his drought-stricken village. Written, directed and starring Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor, the film screens on November 5 at 1:00 pm.
