Author and journalist Amanda Lindhout will be visiting Canada to talk about her memoir A House in the Sky (soon to be reviewed by our own Betty Gelean!) here is an excerpt from her bio:
“Her memoir, A House in the Sky, co-written with New York Times contributing writer Sara Corbett, is the story of a young woman aspiring to live a significant life. In war-ridden Afghanistan and Iraq she carved out a fledgling career as a television reporter. And then, in August 2008, she traveled to Somalia—“the most dangerous place on earth”, where she was abducted by a group of masked men along a dusty road.”
Sounds like an inspiring story of perseverance and survival!
To see her in person, check out her events page! She’s going to be touring B.C, Alberta, and Ottawa at some great venues from a cozy cafe in Canmore to the grand Glenbow Museum in Calgary!
