Jim Henry first learned to write his name at 96. At 98, he wrote a book, WNC reports.
The lifelong lobsterman was illiterate throughout his life. But, soon after moving into a senior home, he shared his secret and started learning from fellow residents.
Henry then tackled a feat he never thought possible, writing a book. "In A Fisherman's Language" takes readers on a 29-chapter journey of the nonagenarian's life.
"I'm in a cloud," Henry told the news outlet. "I'm the happiest man in the world."
