Talk: My Guantanamo Diary

The Authors@Google program welcomed Mahvish Khan to Google's New York office to discuss her debut book, "My Guantánamo Diary" For Mahvish Khan the experience was a validation of her Afghan heritage—as well as her American freedoms, which allowed her to intervene at Guantanamo purely out of her sense that it was the right thing to do. Mahvish Khan's story is a challenging, brave, and essential test of who she is —and who we are.
