Desert Flower in Theaters Now!

March 31, 2011


It was about seven years ago that I read Desert Flower, the autobiography of Waris Dirie, Somalian daughter of desert nomads turned model turned UN Special Ambassador for the Elimination of Female Genital Mutilation.  It was captivating and quite moving. Currently a film, of the same name, based on the book is in a limited release starring Ethiopian model Liya Kebede (one of my favs) as Waris Dire.  I’m definitely checking this out this film!
