Karen Sherman, author of “Brick by Brick — Building Hope and Opportunity for Women Survivors Everywhere“ (January 2020 — Rowman & Littlefield), discusses her memoir and work with Barbara Klein of NPR.
Karen Sherman has spent her life advocating for women in war-torn and transitional countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Congo, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Sudan, Kosovo, and the former Soviet Union. Throughout her 30-year career in global development, Sherman has met and interviewed thousands of women. Their remarkable stories of strength, courage, resilience, and resourcefulness fuel what she believes to be true: championing women’s education and economic participation has the power to transform the lives of women and the future of families, communities, societies, and, ultimately, the world. Read her full biography here.
Barbara Klein has been a newscast anchor at NPR in Washington, DC since 2005, writing and producing hourly round-ups of world news. She is a regular host for weekend news and a substitute for weekday coverage.
Books are available for purchase from East City Bookshop here. Books are currently being shipped or are available for pick up.
