So God apparently has a special place waiting for Greg Mortenson when he gets to heaven. He did all this good like building over 50 schools in Afghanistan and Pakistan and he founded the Central Asia Institute, which he uses to promote education and literacy advancement for girls in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
In case God’s special place isn’t enough, USF is giving Mr. Mortenson an honorary degree and boosting his book sales by assigning his Three Cups of Tea, cowritten with David Oliver Relin, as the summer reading for the incoming class of freshmen.
Curious as to what all this buzz about? Why don’t you judge for yourself! Read Three Cups of Tea and join the USF Book Club to discuss it.
We will meet on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 from 12 noon – 1 pm in the Seminar Room (2nd Fl) of the Gleeson Library | Geschke Center. Bring your lunch! (Faculty and Staff Only)
