On the air

“The Conversation” on KUOW (NPR) Seattle aired our segment about the Congo on Friday and I think it went pretty well. I thoroughly enjoyed the back-and-forth with Lisa and the host, Ross Reynolds, and I hope that for those listening it was informative and perhaps motivational. I mean, that if we were really successful, maybe we will be able to get more and more people interested in learning about, writing about, visiting and helping Congo, especially in finding a way towards a lasting peace in the east.

    I heard this interview on NPR, which led me to your website. I have reposted the interview on Facebook, as well as on goodreads.com. I am in a book group where we are currently reading a book called Half the Sky – it deals with the oppression of women worldwide. I had just finished the chapter on the Congo when I heard the interview, so I shared it with the other ladies in the book group. Thank you so much for the work you do on women’s and children’s issues like this. It is critical to educate people about these issues.

    Hi Jessica,

    Thanks so much for listening and for looking through my Web site! I, too, read “Half the Sky” — it is a compelling argument. If your book group is interested in Congo there are several books you might want to read next — Lisa Shannon’s book “A Thousand Sisters,” Adam Hochschild’s “King Leopold’s Ghost,” or Bryan Mealer’s “All Things Must Fight to Live.”

    I am so grateful for your support.
    Best regards,
