PROMISE OF A PENCIL How an Ordinary Person Can Create Extraordinary Change

by | Read by Kirby Heyborne

Contemporary Culture • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

Narrator Kirby Heyborne provides an energetic and youthful reading of the story of Adam Braun, a young man who struck out on his own to start Pencils of Promise, a nonprofit organization focused on building schools in the developing world. After college, Braun was poised to launch a successful career with a management consulting firm on Wall Street. But ultimately he felt he could live a life of greater purpose and meaning by striving to help people in developing countries meet their basic needs for education. Heyborne captures this idealistic view with a sensitive and thoughtful tone. Adam Braun himself delivers the introduction and epilogue to the audiobook.
