Writers Panel: Telling the Story
This year’s Annual Conference will feature a moderated lunchtime discussion with authors of recent books related to international development. Many in the international development world have lived and traveled extensively, engaged with people from all parts of the world and in a broad range of situations, have encountered countless challenges, witnessed success and failure, and learned from it all. And some have been able to corral their experiences, insights, and ideas into books. Our panel of authors of recently published books will look at their varied experiences and stories. Lee Gutkind, the “godfather behind creative nonfiction,” will moderate the discussion with Amb. Rick Barton, author of Peace Works: America’s Unifying Role in a Turbulent World, Alex Dehgan, author of the The Snow Leopard Project and other Adventures in Warzone Conservation, and Dr. Azar Nafisi, author of Reading Lolita in Tehran.
