Denver/Rocky Mountain States Benefit Dinner 2012
Join us at our 4th Annual Denver/Rocky Mountain States Benefit Dinner. We will welcome Roxana Saberi, author of Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran, an Iranian-American journalist who was working as a freelance journalist in Iran when she was arrested and detained in Evin Prison in January 2009. She was released 100 days later, after her case captured the world’s attention. Saberi is now writing and speaking out for human rights and “prisoners of conscience” in Iran. Her book tells the story of her arrest and captivity, shares the struggles and courage of her cellmates that inspired her along the way, and describes her personal journey as she strives to defy her captors and be true to herself, regardless of the consequences.
