Description: Join Anne O'Connor, here to discuss and sign copies of her memoir "Being Madam Fatima."
Though most U.S. citizens experienced 9/11 on American soil, one American braved the stares and threats while working in a remote region of Saudi Arabia. As a single woman, and key leader of an acute care hospital, she fought both demons around her and inside her head. Being far from the children she loved, and forced to work extremely long hours, daily events taxed this lonely woman far beyond what she thought any human could endure. The attacks on September 11th just made life worse. From these experiences, this woman learned to never give up hope and to keep fight.
Indy’s own Ann O’Connor brings to life her daring accounts of being isolated from the Western community at a pinnacle point in Arab/American relations. Her book, Being Madam Fatima, is a touching recount of coming to terms with threats while having to deal with the separation from her small children for more than five years and her recovery from a tragic spinal cord injury. O’Connor’s hope is to inspire others to keep going, especially during challenging times. This memoir is guaranteed to evoke tears and have you seeing September 11th from a broader lens.
