Author and Journalist Kim Barker Lecture and Book Signing

 


                Author and Journalist Kim Barker Speaks On Afghanistan and Pakistan



 





Before a captive audience, author and journalist, Kim Barker, spoke at the National Press Club on March 24, 2011, about her 5 years in Afghanistan. Her just published book, “The Taliban Shuffle,” reveals her in depth experience covering both Afghanistan and Pakistan.


Many in the audience were Barker’s friends and colleagues. One audience member in particular was Kim Barker’s interpreter.




When asked what she missed most about being there, she responded, “Believe it or not, I miss the people and my colleagues!” When asked if she would return, Miss Barker replied, with a resounding, “YES!” She further commented that she was still adjusting to being back in America, something that is not easy, but is getting easier.


Previous to her overseas assignment as the South Asian bureau chief for The Chicago Tribune, where she worked from 2001 to 2009, Barker also worked for The Spokesman Review and The Seattle Times.




Currently, Miss Barker is an investigative reporter for ProPublica, a non-profit and independent news organization in New York City.


With portions of her book humorous, Miss Barker turned the truth of tragedy into laughter.
