Since an unexpected wedding invitation led her to move to Peshawar 30 years ago, Christina Lamb OBE has become one of Britain’s best known foreign correspondents, as well as a bestselling author.
As Chief Foreign Correspondent for the Sunday Times, Christina travels everywhere from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe for the Fall of Mugabe to Europe, where she reported on the disappearance of child refuges. Over the years she has won 14 major awards including ‘Foreign Correspondent of the Year’ 5 times and Europe’s top war reporting prize, the Prix Bayeux.
Christina has written eight books including the bestselling ‘The Africa House’ and ‘I Am Malala’; with her latest books being ‘Farewell Kabul: From Afghanistan to a More Dangerous World’ and ‘The Girl from Apello: Nujeen’s Escape from War to Freedom in a Wheelchair’.
