Oct 18 Edmonton Litfest – Amanda Lindhout

Next week Litfest 2013 will  arrive in Edmonton region and one of the speakers will be Amanda Lindout who in Aug 2008 was kidnapped while visiting Mogadishu Somalia as a freelancing journalist.  She was held for ransom along with her ex-boyfriend photo-journalist Nigel Brennan for 460 days before their  release.   Her co-written auto-biography “A House in the Sky” is about that experience.  She has faced some justified criticism over the whole experience.

Since her return Ms Lindhout founded the Global Enrichment Foundation.

Here is her introduction of her book.

 

She will be speaking on Fri Oct 18@1930h at Stan Milner Library. (Only tix remaining will be available at the door from 1830h)
