I had an opportunity to see Greg Mortenson
, author of "Three Cups of Tea

More importantly, if you haven't read the book, pick up a copy. One interesting thing I didn't know is how well the book has done with virtually no publicity. It's been on the NYT Bestseller list for over 50 weeks now. And Mortenson is going to be the keynote speaker at ALA this year. Quite a feat considering his humble beginnings of trying to raise awareness of his cause (education and literacy) with almost no success.
