Sarah Chayes, a former National Public Radio reporter, delivered the E. N. Thompson Forum lecture "Notes from Afghanistan," at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Chayes has lived and worked in Kandahar, Afghanistan, since 2001, when she covered the fall of the Taliban for NPR. In 2002, she left journalism to help rebuild the shattered country whose fate will help determine the shape of the 21st century, working first with Afghans for Civil Society, and currently with Arghand, a cooperative producing skin-care products from local fruits, nuts and botanicals.
