It’s Maria, here. I’m excited to tell you about my time with Greg Mortenson, author of Three Cups of Tea!
Art of Tea was able to support the Long Beach Library Foundation and Greg’s Central Asia Institute at the Carpenter Performing Arts Center for the Long Beach Reads One Book event. We also served tea at a luncheon at the delicious Fresh Foods Cafe on Golden Shores.
Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace . . . One School at a Time is a riveting story about how Greg’s goal to climb Pakistan’s mountain K2 ultimately led him to a small village in Pakistan. He needed care, and the people of this village healed his body and his heart. After seeing the local children playing and drawing in the dirt with no school to go to, Greg set his mind to build a school for the village, named Korphe. As of last year, Mortenson has established over 78 schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan, which provide education for over 28,000 children, including 18,000 girls, where few education opportunities existed before.
