All the votes have been counted, and Chelmsford’s One Book for 2009 is:
Three Cups of Tea,
by Greg Mortenson
The astonishing, uplifting story of a real-life Indiana Jones’ campaign to build schools in the most dangerous, remote, and anti-American reaches of Asia. Inspired by a chance encounter with impoverished mountain villagers, the author is building schools to provide a balanced education in an isolated and dangerous region.
