Greg Mortenson(Three Cups of tea) In NYC!

The author of [em]Three Cups of Tea[/em], Greg Mortenson, will be speaking this Thursday evening, in Manhattan. The event will be held at the Barnes and Noble store on Broadway @ 66th, from 7:30 to 10:00pm.

If you've not yet read the book, or heard of the man - you must! A climber trying to get home after an unsuccessful attempt on K2, Mortenson found his way to a village in Pakistan that would alter the course of his life in a way no one could imagine. It is an inspiring and incredible story of effort on par with the most epic of mountain climbs, and a hope-filled book that breaks down stereotypes with the most powerful of weapons - truth.

Read it! When purchased through the Three Cups of Tea website, 7% of the proceeds are donated to the Central Asia Institute, the organization Mortenson founded.

If you don't live in New York City, no worries! The man tours extensively, in order to promote the project. Check the Calendar page to see if he will be at a location you may be able to go to. Simply use the "Filter" tool to select your state, and see the dates scheduled for appearances.
