MURDER IN THE HIGH HIMALAYA
Friday, September 10 from 7-9 PM
 
Jonathangreen
 
Jonathan Green reads from Murder in the High Himalaya, the unforgettable account of the brutal killing of Kelsang Namtso—a seventeen-year-old Tibetan nun fleeing with the group to Dharamsala to escape religious persecution. Kelsang’s death is a painful example of Tibet’s oppression by China, but this time a human rights atrocity was witnessed and documented by dozens of Western climbers. Their moral dilemma was plain—would they tell the world what they had seen, risking their chance to climb in China again, or would they pass on by? At the center of the story is an American climber, struck with a crisis of conscience, who gambled with his career to speak out and a young, Tibetan girl who has sacrificed her right to return to Tibet by bearing witness to the murder of her best friend to the Western media. Both risked their futures to expose the abuses of China in Tibet and paid the price.
