Author Signing: Melissa Burch: My Journey Through War and Peace

WHEN: Saturday, May 14, 2:00 to 4:00 pm

WHERE: Horizon Books, Traverse City, Michigan

My Journey Through War and Peace: Explorations of a Young Filmmaker, Feminist and Spiritual Seeker, is based on Melissa Burch’s experiences as a war journalist for BBC, CBS, and other networks. Her team was one of the first documentary crews allowed in the Soviet Union at the height of the Cold War, and she was featured in a New York Times story about her time in Afghanistan. She was just in her twenties when she traveled with the mujahideen, filmed an attack on a Soviet convoy, slept with an Afghan commander, and climbed 14,000-foot mountains in the Hindu Kush.
