Matthew Félix (Replay): A Groundbreaker & A New York Times Bestseller

Happy Mother’s Day!

I’m currently traveling in Central Asia, so this week’s show is a replay of my March 18, 2018 episode. I’ll be back in the studio on May 20!

My first guest will be educator, traveler, and writer Diane LeBow. Diane is recipient of a Lifetime Achievement Award from Rutgers University for “her long career in writing, photojournalism, college teaching, and women’s rights work.” Diane helped author the Declaration of the Essential Rights of Afghan Women for the new Afghan constitution. She is President emerita of Bay Area Travel Writers, and her award-winning work has appeared on Salon.com and in national newspapers and magazines. We’ll talk about her experiences, adventures, and her in-progress book about her search for the best of all possible worlds.

In my second segment, I’ll talk with New York Times best-selling author Jasmin Darznik about her new novel, Song of a Captive Bird, a fictional account of Iran’s trailblazing woman poet, Forugh Farrokhzad. Jasmin, who was born in Teheran, Iran and came to the United States when she was five years old, is also the author of The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother’s Hidden Life. She holds a Ph.D. in English from Princeton University, and her essays have appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times.
