Speak Easy Salon

"The Dressmaker of Khair Khana"

The Speak Easy Salon is meeting Wednesday, April 18, at 3:30 p.m. to discuss the timely topic of survival in Afghanistan. The Dressmaker of Khair Khana focuses on a brave and determined woman.  She is prevented from teaching under the Taliban and in response, starts a business to feed her family and ends supporting a community.

The author, Gayle Tzemach Lemmon,  places this true account in a comparative framework of women worldwide transforming their societies. Join an interesting group for a fascinating discussion accompanied by good cheer and refreshments.
