Join us for a unique opportunity to chat with Karen Sherman the author of Brick by Brick - Building Hope and Opportunity for Women Survivors Everywhere. This powerful memoir weaves the stories of valiant women who survived war and conflict with the personal struggles of author Karen Sherman, a long-standing international women’s rights advocate working to recover from her own difficult upbringing. The remarkable strength of these women helped Karen find her own way—through conflict zones, confrontations with corrupt officials, and painful questions about her marriage and career—to a renewed commitment to her family and advancing women around the world.

About our Speaker:
Karen Sherman, author of Brick by Brick -- Building Hope and Opportunity for Women Survivors Everywhere (January 2020 -- Rowman & Littlefield), has spent her life advocating for women in war-torn and transitional countries such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, Congo, Nigeria, Rwanda, South Sudan, Kosovo, and the former Soviet Union. Throughout her 30-year career in global development, Sherman has met and interviewed thousands of women. Their remarkable stories of strength, courage, resilience, and resourcefulness fuel what she believes to be true: championing women’s education and economic participation has the power to transform the lives of women and the future of families, communities, societies, and, ultimately, the world.
