So little has been written about Hezbollah in Lebanon, at the time Western media and politicians try to hammer it constantly. This year, Lebanon's book fair witnessed the signing of a unique book that provides the viewpoint of an American woman on Hezbollah. She is Brenda Heard; a writer, a teacher and a human rights activist.
Brenda has travelled repeatedly throughout the US, Canada, Europe, India and the Middle East. Having taught university and business level English for over a decade, in 2006 she founded the Friends of Lebanon organization, based in London, England.
