Listen to this story
Roxana Saberi visited the St Lawrence University campus earlier this month. The Iranian-American reporter--who has filed stories from Iran for NPR and other news outlets--recently finished a book recounting her 100 days in Iran's infamous Evin Prison. According to Iranian authorities, she was arrested on suspicion of spying. In her book, Between Two Worlds, Saberi cites several sources that debunk the Iranian government's accusations against her. During her short stay in Canton, she sat down for a talk with AB5 host Jonathan Brown. He asked her to recount the events of January 31st, 2009. That's when Iranian intelligence officials came for her.
