Local Author on Violence Against Pakistani Women

Listen Now

One night, eight years ago, former Denver county judge Jacqueline St. Joan was at a dinner party. At the party, she met a woman she’s come to think of as the “Harriet Tubman of Pakistan.” In this case, the underground railroad isn’t delivering people from slavery, but rescuing women from gruesome acts of violence. Now, St. Joan has written the novel "My Sisters Made of Light" based on the woman she met. Ryan Warner spoke with the author. For more on the book: http://mysistersmadeoflight.com
