About the Author

Sabriye Tenberken developed a strong interest in creating ethical and social change. She studied Tibetology and Central Asian sciences at Bonn University, Germany. She and her partner, Paul Kronenberg, are the founders of Braille Without Borders, a group that provides counsel and services for the blind worldwide. In 2005 Sabriye and Paul founded kanthari, the International Institute for Social Entrepreneurs, in Kerala, southern India. Kanthari fosters participants from all over the world who, like Sabriye, have both a passion to make the world a better place and the strength to be forces of good rather than the victims of circumstance. A motivational speaker who also starred in the award-winning documentary Blindsight, she was a guest on many talk shows, including Oprah. Among her many international awards are Time Magazine's Hero award (for both Asia and Europe), the Mother Teresa Award, and the Young Global Leader (WEF). She was also nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Sabriye and Paul live in Kerala, India. Rosemary Mahoney is the author of For the Benefit of Those Who See: Dispatches from the World of the Blind (January 2014). She is also the author of Whoredom in Kimmage, a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist; Down the Nile: Alone in a Fisherman's Skiff; a New York Times Notable Book, A Likely Story: One Summer with Lillian Hellman; and two other books. She was a 2011 Guggenheim fellow and is the recipient of a Whiting Writers' Award.


"A phenomenal woman." -O, the Oprah Magazine "Carries one along, in a sort of wonder, from the first word to the last." -Oliver Sacks "Genuinely inspiring ... Tenberken demonstrates a nuanced understanding of her role as a Westerner in Tibet." -Washington Post Book World "Impressive, moving, and refreshingly free of sentimentality and self-pity." -Kirkus Reviews
