Tim Ward , the acclaimed author of What the Buddha Never Taught, returns to the Festival with Zombies on Kilimanjaro: A Father/Son Journey Above the Clouds . It follows a journey with his son to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, where they traverse the treacherous terrain of fatherhood, divorce, dark secrets and old grudges, and forge an authentic adult relationship. The mountain too has a story to tell, a story about climate change and the future of humankind – a future etched all too clearly on Kilimanjaro’s retreating glaciers.
