Marianne Elliott presents “Zen Under Fire: How I Found Peace in the Midst of War”

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In 2006 Marianne Elliott, a human rights lawyer from New Zealand, was stationed with the UN in Herat. Several months into her new role a tribal leader is assassinated while she is in charge of the local UN office. She must defuse the situation before it leads to widespread bloodshed.

And this is just the beginning of her story in Afghanistan.

Join Marianne Elliott for a reading, discussion and signing of “Zen Under Fire”
Tuesday, July 2nd at 7PM

Zen Under Fire is a vivid account of Marianne’s experience living and working in the world’s most notorious battlefield. As well as sharing the incredible details of her UN role, Marianne tells the very personal story of the shattering effect that the high-stress environment had on her and her relationships, and asks what it really means to do good in a country that is under siege from within.
