We are excited to host an event with Melissa Burch, whose memoir, My Journey Through War and Peace, tells the tremendous story of her experiences as a documentary filmmaker in Afghanistan and the former Soviet Union during times of extreme sociocultural shifts. The book details not only the story of these places, but also of Melissa’s own growth and self-discovery (she was only 20 when she went to Afghanistan to film the Mujahideen) as she began the path of a personal and spiritual revolution. Kirkus Reviews raves that she writes “with sensitivity and vivid clarity about her evolving self” in this “absorbing, well-written memoir by a brave adventurer who discovered her own life.” Melissa has worked as a filmmaker, writer, editor, producer, and journalist for the BBC, CNN, and other news networks.
