First, We Take The Danforth. Then We Take Burnaby.
"An award-winning journalist overturns western stereotypes as he takes readers into the Afghanistan that exists “outside the wire” and introduces the people whose defiant courage offers hope for the future. On Sunday, October 23 at 2:00 p.m., Terry Glavin will be presenting Come from the Shadows at Tommy Douglas Library (7311 Kingsway Ave, Burnaby). Burnaby's Abdulrahim Parwani, a prominent Afghan writer and activist who is featured prominently in the book, will also be in attendance.
Afghanistan has been on a knife edge for the past couple of years, but now that "the west" appears to be waking up from the delusion of "peace talks" with the Taliban, Afghan democrats are again seeing light at the end of the tunnel.
