PEN Discussion

Went to this wonderful panel last week here in NYC – and now PEN has put it up on YouTube which means everyone can see it. I mainly went to get a look at Roger Cohen in person as I have very much admired his work on Iran over the past month, but I was also very happy to hear the thoughts of Karim and Haleh as well. In particular look at how tiny Haleh is and then think about the fact that she, in her late sixties, spent 105 days in solitary confinement in Iran a few years ago.
