Jeannee Sacken Author Visit

Wednesday, October 11

6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Location: Shorewood VIllage Center

Meet Milwaukee author and photojournalist Jeannee Sacken. Jeannee will discuss her new book, The Rule of Thirds.


Despite her PTSD, seasoned photojournalist Annie Hawkins heads back to Afghanistan. The Taliban's takeover of the country is the story of the decade, and Annie is determined to cover it. She's also desperate to keep an eye on her twenty-two-year-old daughter Mel, whose first job out of college has taken her to Kabul.

The very air of the city is heavy with fear as the Taliban draw closer. The danger becomes even more personal for Annie when she discovers her daughter at the airport after a bombing. Then, her activist friends Bahar and Fatima face arrest and probable death sentences for their work in support of women and the coalition forces. When she tries to help them escape, Annie realizes that she's in the crosshairs, too. With her longtime love Admiral Finn Cerelli in Washington, D.C., Annie has to rely on her crew's Afghan fixer and her own wits to save as many lives as possible.


Author Jeannée Sacken has crafted a work that captures the atmosphere of fear and tension that permeates the city as the Taliban advances, delivering suspense and thrills alongside a compelling romantic and family drama plot." - K.C. Finn


A former English professor at Rochester Institute of Technology, Jeannée Sacken is now a photojournalist who travels the world, documenting the lives of women and children.
