A belated homage to March 8’s International Women’s Day!
My first guest will be educator, traveler, and writer Diane LeBow. Diane is recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from Rutgers University for “her long career in writing, photojournalism, college teaching, and women’s rights work.” We’ll talk about her experiences, adventures, and her in-progress book about her search for the best of all possible worlds.
In my second segment, I’ll talk with New York Times best-selling author Jasmin Darznik about her new novel, Song of a Captive Bird, a fictional account of Iran’s trailblazing woman poet, Forugh Farrokhzad. Jasmin, who was born in Teheran, Iran and came to the United States when she was five years old, is also the author of The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother’s Hidden Life. Her essays have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times.
