Qais Akbar Omar to speak on acclaimed memoir, "Fort of Nine Towers"

Friday, Nov 22, 2013 3:30p
Bentley University Waltham, MA

During the 1990s, when Afghanistan was under Taliban control, Qais Akbar Omar set out with his family on a journey to avoid the trauma and violence that put everyone in the country at risk. He has now written what is widely agreed to be one of the most outstanding memoirs of life in Afghanistan under warlord and Taliban rule, "A Fort of Nine Towers: An Afghan Family Story."
