An Evening With Humanitarian Greg Mortenson

Presented by Literary Arts & Powell's Books on December 14, 2009, at 7:30 p.m. in Portland.

Greg Mortenson is the author of the New York Times bestseller Three Cups of Tea. In his talk with Literary Arts, Mortenson will recount his ongoing efforts to promote peace through education and literacy by establishing schools for girls in Afghanistan; his extensive work in Azad Kashmir and Pakistan after a massive earthquake hit the region in 2005; and the unique ways he has built relationships with Islamic clerics, militia commanders, and tribal leaders even as he was dodging shootouts with feuding Afghan warlords and surviving an eight-day armed abduction by the Taliban.
