Join us this May for an unforgettable evening with author and humanitarian Amanda Lindhout, or Paralympic gold medalist Chantal Petitclerc. The T.E. Wealth Speaker Series presents:
In August 2008, Calgary-born Amanda Lindhout travelled to Somalia as a freelance journalist to research a story on the millions of people affected by two decades of war, drought, and famine. On her fourth day there, she was abducted and taken hostage alongside a fellow journalist. The two were held in captivity for 460 days.
A mesmerizing and unforgettable speaker, Lindhout leaves audiences with a fuller understanding of the freedom we can all experience when we choose to embrace compassion. Her memoir, A House in the Sky, is a New York Times bestseller and is slated for development as a major film.
