It’s no secret that I like to read a good book……. This summer I am reading “The DRESSMAKER of KHAIR KHANA”

The book is about a women who is fearless and stitched her way to success! She (KHair Khana) banned from the streets,and from school and work all because of her gender. She was also raising six childern of her own and trying to figure out what she could do to make money. So one day Khair Khana finally decided to pick up a needle and some thread and started a dressmaking business. How cool is! As time went on she even taught sewing lessons in her own home and was trying to reach as many women as she could in Afghanistan.

Also, a women by the name of Gayle Tzemach Lemmon spent several years on the ground reporting Khair story. So if you are looking for a good book I would recommend that you read this book.

    That sounds very interesting – thank you for letting us know about it. (I’m off to see if my library has it!)
