Greg Mortenson was the recipient of the Fall for the Book’s 2010 Mason Award, which recognizes authors who have made extraordinary contributions to bringing literature to a wide reading public. He is the author of Three Cups of Tea: One Man’s Mission to Promote Peace... One School At A Time and Stones into Schools: Promoting Peace with Books, Not Bombs, in Afghanistan and Pakistan. Mr. Mortenson showed videos during his lecture.

Greg Mortenson is the co-founder of the nonprofit Central Asia Institute, whose mission is “to promote and support community-based education, especially for girls, in remote regions of northern Pakistan and Afghanistan,” and the founder of Pennies for Peace, which seeks to “educate American children about the world beyond their experience and how they can make a positive impact on a global scale, one penny at a time.” Greg Mortenson’s appearance in the Concert Hall of George Mason University’s Center for the Arts was supported by the George Mason University Chapter of Amnesty International, Mason’s Afghan Student Union, and Mason’s Pakistan Students Association. close
