Spring/Summer '09 Reading Group List
“Greg Mortenson's story and his work in establishing schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan show the power of a passion to make a difference, particularly in the lives of women living in abject poverty with no previous access to education. A great book to remind us that we, as Americans, take many things for granted.”
— Cathy Berner, Blue Willow Bookshop, Houston, TX
Chinese edition of Three Cups of Tea. The author, an avid mountain climber, was injured climbing the K2. He was rescued and nursed by the locals. During his recovery, he learned of his sister's premature death. These two events prompted him to rethink his life, and he decided to build a school for the children of this poor village. This memoir chronicles how what began as a return for kindness turned into a passion. In Traditional Chinese.
