    Starts up in Oct. I'm hoping to go see Thunder Over Kandahar
    In her role as Canadian war artist, Sharon E. McKay worked with Canadian troops in Afghanistan and was able to see firsthand the effect of the war on ordinary young people, especially girls whose dreams of education have been shattered by the Taliban. She has also spent time with children in Uganda for her book about child soldiers. She has turned those experiences into riveting fiction that explores real life outside Canada’s borders. In answer to why she focuses on war and children, McKay says, “It’s a part of our history. If you’re going to be a real citizen in the world, you’ve got to know about it.”
