They are each solidly on their individual paths, Farah leaning toward the intersection of political science and the unique issues women and children face, Meena leaning toward the humanities and psychology. Each are extraordinary women in their own right and it's a privilege to watch them evolve.
During this time I've been working in new directions with my writing, exploring essays in non-fiction journalism.
I'm currently in Fairbanks, Alaska where I'll be doing a reading of some of these works in collaboration with author and friend, Katey Schultz. The theme of these works is the human side of war in Afghanistan and Iraq. If you're in Fairbanks at the end of August, come join us!
Karen Button & Katey Schultz present their works of non-fiction journalism and short-story fiction:
