Mansfield Reads Together


The excitement is building! The Mansfield Women of Today and the Mansfield Public Library

have joined together to sponsor Mansfield's first "community read." Our chosen book is THREE CUPS OF TEA by Greg Mortenson. Greg went to Pakistan in 1995 to climb K2, and ended up making his life's work the building of schools in Pakistan and Afghanistan. We have a variety of activities planned for the month of February, our "Read" month. We're sponsoring book discussions, a climbing wall, a program by a mountain climber, a discussion of Islam, and more.

The grand finale will be a visit by Greg Mortenson himself on February 27. We currently have a few copies of THREE CUPS OF TEA available for borrowing, but in the next week or two will be adding over 100 copies. In addition, copies are available from local bookstores, and we will be delivering some copies to schools and organizations. Please follow our events on our library event calendar at www.sailsinc.org/mansfield as well as through local papers.

Could you tell me--is the presentation by Greg Mortenson open to the public or is there limited space? I would be interested in attending but I am outside of the Mansfield community.
Thank you.
