Thirza Krohn, in charge of Aberdeen Timberland Library‘s Adult Services, announced that her Washington library will host storyteller Rebecca Hom who will present tales of peace, justice, and humor from the Islamic World on September 11. Their TSP event is part of their 2009 Timberland Reads Together program: Three Cups of Tea. Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin co-wrote the New York Times Bestseller about Mortenson’s real-life mission to spread freedom and hope to others by building schools in Pakistan. It shows how simple acts can make a great difference in people’s lives even from half a world away.
Aberdeen Timberland Library will have a display of patron-recommended books and will serve tea with Pakistani snacks.
