Author and Afghan landmine survivor Farah Ahmedi speaks


Author and Afghan landmine survivor Farah Ahmedi is coming to CHS on Thursday night, November 30! Community members invited!





Living amidst the horror of war in Afghanistan, Farah steps on a landmine on her way to school at age 7. What follows is a remarkable story of survival after most of her family is killed and she and her mother walk across the mountains to Pakistan, live in a refugee camp, and eventually make it to America.

Paperback copies of her book, The Story of My Life: An Afghan Girl on the Other Side of the Sky will be available for purchase at the CHS library & the Southlake Public Library. The author will sign bookplates to put in the purchased books.
