More about our presenter, Catherine

Catherine Bohne was brought up by two literature professors to love books and scholarship. At 16 she won a place at the Waterford Kamhlaba United World College of Southern Africa, and then went on to express her teenage rebellion by studying biology at University back in the States. After knocking around a bit, she settled in Brooklyn where she returned to the fold (kind of) by taking over ownership of the Community Bookstore of Park Slope, one of the oldest independent bookstores in NYC. After almost 10 years, she went on holiday to Albania, and found a new home in the Valbona Valley where she has now been living for almost 5 years, working to develop local tourism in summer, marking and mapping trails, helping with environmental research and working with the children of the valley in winter.  The most recent achievements she's proud of include being a TEDx Tirana speaker in May 2014 and contributing to getting a really stupid Management Plan for Valbona National Park shot down in (figurative) flames last July.
