Wed, 11/16/2011

Host Linda Olson Osterlund speaks with journalist and author Michelle Shephard, the Toronto Star’s National Security reporter and winner of Canada’s top journalism’s prizes. Michelle is the author of Guantanamo’s Child: The Untold Story of Omar Khadr, and, most recently, Decade of Fear: Reporting from Terrorism’s Grey Zone.

They will discuss "Decade of Fear," which has been described as a journalistic memoir. Shephard conducted hundreds of interviews worldwide and wove them together to describe the decade since 2001 and looked at how the West’s “solutions” for terrorism only served to exacerbate the problem.
