A talk and slide show on Greg Mortenson's book "Three Cups of Tea: One Man's Mission to Promote Peace ... One School at a Time," presented by Greg's mother, Jerene Mortenson, will be at 7 p.m. Nov. 5 at Trinity Lutheran Church in Brainerd.
Admission is free; donations will be accepted.
Montana's Greg Mortenson is the co-founder, with Jean Hoerni, of the nonprofit Central Asia Institute. Since a 1993 climb on Pakistan's K2, Mortenson has dedicated his life to promoting community-based education in remote regions of Pakistan and Afghanistan. He is also the founder of Pennies For Peace.
"Three Cups of Tea," co-authored by David Oliver Relin, was published last year in hardcover by Viking and this year in paperback by Penguin. It has been a New York Times bestseller, TIME Magazine's Asia Book of the Year and a Borders Books Original Voices Selection.
The talk is sponsored by the American Association of University Women. For more information, visit www.gregmortenson.com or call Ellie Aarrestad at 829-6178.
