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.
