With Kim Barker, Gini Reticker and Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya in conversation with Lee Woodruff.
Kim Barker’s book, The Taliban Shuffle: Strange Days in Afghanistan and Pakistan, about her years as the South Asia bureau chief for The Chicago Tribune in New Delhi and Islamabad was the basis for the movie Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. An expert from the frontlines, filmmaker Gini Reticker’s documentary, Women, War & Peace, focuses her lens on the perils and roles of women in war zones. Critically acclaimed author Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya’s novel, The Watch, features a contemporary Antigone in Afghanistan in conversation about the strategic role of women in conflict and peacebuilding throughout the world. Their conversation will be moderated by award-winning journalist Lee Woodruff, author of the bestselling book In an Instant, which documents her family’s road to recovery after the roadside bombing of her husband while reporting from Iraq.
