Resilience: Stories of Adult Learning
by Tara Furlong (editor) & Keiko Yasukawa (editor)
This is a collection of learner stories, in their own words and with some helpful contributions by tutors along the way. It is testimony to the resilience of human lives, the critical role of lifelong learning, and how adult literacies weave through our journeys, visibly and invisibly.
