Library Exhibit at Lockwood Memorial Library
October 25, 2010 – December 31, 2010
The exhibit highlights Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace…One School at a Time, the selection of the 2010 UB Reads program. The book recounts the remarkable journey that led author Greg Mortenson from his failed 1993 attempt to climb Pakistan’s K-2, the world’s second-highest mountain, to build schools in some of the most remote regions of Afghanistan and Pakistan. The exhibit’s photographs, maps, clothing and jewelry lend a striking visual dimension to this compelling narrative.
An online presentation, created in honor of author Greg Mortenson’s appearance at UB on November 10, 2010 as part of the UB Distinguished Speakers Series, is also available.
