    The life Kamila Sidiqi had known changed overnight when the Taliban seized control of the city of Kabul. After receiving a teaching degree during the civil war - a rare achievement for any Afghan woman - Kamila was subsequently banned from school and confined to her home. When her father and brother were forced to flee the city, Kamila became the sole breadwinner for her five siblings. Armed only with grit and determination, she picked up a needle and thread and created a thriving business of her own.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Dressmaker of Khair Khana in three words, what would they be?

    courageous, bold and innovative


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dressmaker of Khair Khana?

    The part where they are on a bus without a male attendant. I was impressed with the way Camil talked her way out of her predicament.


    What does Sarah Zimmerman bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    With this book and others, the narrator brings mood, emotion and brings the characters to life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was impressed with the outcome - I fully expected something to go very wrong. I had a hard time trying to put myself in the situations the women were in. I was angry with the Taliban and hoped they would be taken over.
