Sharon McKay on CBC Radio

Our author Sharon McKay was interviewed on CBC Radio's Sunday Edition last weekend about her recent trip to Afghanistan with the Canadian War Artists Program. She was conducting research for her next children's book with Annick (working title: Stones Over Kandahar), which is based in Afghanistan. She went on foot patrols, visited classrooms, and reported that "Stories fall out of the sky over there!" Her website has a great slideshow of pictures from the trip. Here's a bonus one of Sharon in her protective gear:
