Roxana Saberi

Journalist; Author, Between Two Worlds: My Life and Captivity in Iran

A journalist imprisoned in Iran breaks her silence to tell a harrowing story of imprisonment and ultimate release. While working in Iran last year, Saberi made international headlines when she was dragged from her home, detained and arrested by intelligence agents. Cut off from the outside world, Saberi was accused of espionage and later sentenced to eight years in Evin, Iran's most notorious prison. After months of appeals, the charges against Saberi were finally reduced and she was released and returned back to the United States. She will shed light on Iran's political regime and the current challenges facing the country.
