2010 Book Festival Author
Broughton Coburn

Author Biography

Coburn graduated from Harvard College in 1973, then worked two of the past three decades in the Himalayas where he developed documentary films and oversaw environmental conservation and development efforts for the World Bank, UNESCO, World Wildlife Fund, and other agencies.  His book Nepali Aama: Life Lessons of a Himalayan Woman (now in its fourth edition), documents Aama's life as an elderly, subsistence farmer in the foothills of the Himalayas. The sequel, Aama in America: A Pilgrimage of the Heart is the dramatic and poignant tale of their 12,000 mile odyssey in search of the soul of the United States. In addition to acclaim as an illustrated lecture program, this story has been widely excerpted and a feature film screenplay is in progress.
