What Lessons Can We Learn From Greg Mortenson?

In January and February the Vineyard Haven Public Library is hosting a series on the work of Greg Mortenson (Three Cups of Tea, Stones into Schools), with events for all ages.

On Tuesdays at 7pm, through Feb. 9th, Professor Jim Norton will lead a discussion of some of the lessons that can be learned from Greg Mortenson's work. Each class will stand alone, so you can join the class for one session or come to all six.

On Thursday, January 21st at 1:30 pm, the Vineyard Haven Library Book Group will be discussing Three Cups of Tea, with refreshments provided by the Friends of the Library. The Young Adult Book Club will be discussing Three Cups of Tea: Young Readers Edition, on Thursday, February 4th at 6 pm.

On Thursday, February 11th at 3:30 pm, Robin Tuck will present a folk tale from Afghanistan as a puppet show for ages 5 and up, with a special craft following the show. This age group will be reading Listen to the Wind, a picture book for young children written by Greg Mortenson.

Throughout the month of January the Library Friends’ Display Case will feature items of clothing, jewelry, rugs and other artifacts from Afghanistan and Central Asia.
