Filmmaker and foreign correspondent Elizabeth Farnsworth may be best-known for her work in dangerous parts of the world. She's reported for the PBS NewsHour from Cambodia, Haiti, Saudi Arabia and Chile...but before she became a globe-trotting journalist, she was a Kansas native. Now she's written a book about her experiences and the way they connect to her childhood in Topeka. She talked with KPR's Laura Lorson about her unusual sense of storytelling, and how her memoir reflects that.
Elizabeth Farnsworth is an award-winning foreign correspondent and filmmaker. Her memoir is called "A Train Through Time: A Life, Real and Imagined," and is published by Counterpoint Press. She will be speaking and signing books at the Topeka-Shawnee County Public Library on Sunday at 2 p.m. We're also giving away a copy of "A Train Through Time" -- to enter to win, visit the KPR Facebook page.
