Amanda Lindhout, Sara Corbett Book and Novel

Amanda Lindhout, Sara Corbett - Authors


Amanda Lindhout is an award winning humanitarian, social activist, public speaker and writer, as well as the Founder and former Executive Director of the Global Enrichment Foundation.

A woman whose compassion and determination are a powerful portrait of the strength of the human spirit, she founded the Global Enrichment Foundation to empower, educate and provide aid in the very country where she lost her freedom. Amanda’s trajectory as a woman of unique resilience, vision and action has made her an inspiring example of how one person can enact positive change on a worldwide scale. In 2012, the Women’s Executive Network named Amanda one of Canada’s 100 Most Powerful Women.

Her memoir, A House in the Sky, co-written with New York Times contributing writer Sara Corbett, is the story of a young woman aspiring to live a significant life. In war-ridden Afghanistan and Iraq she carved out a fledgling career as a television reporter. And then, in August 2008, she traveled to Somalia—“the most dangerous place on earth”, where she was abducted by a group of masked men along a dusty road.

Vivid and suspenseful, as artfully written as the finest novel, A House in the Sky is the searingly intimate story of an intrepid young woman and her search for compassion in the face of unimaginable adversity.
