His wife Naheed captured the story of their escape in "Shooting Kabul," an award-winning novel loosely based on Farid's experience. Farid is a guest at the upcoming "Evening with the STARS" gala, held by the San Juan Education Foundation. He and Naheed are here with us today to talk about their experiences in the Middle East.

Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference In mid-October more than a thousand scientists, managers, and policymakers will descend onto Sacramento to discuss ways of ensuring the health of the Delta - a region that often tops Governor Brown's list of issues because of its importance to California's water supply. The 7th Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference runs from October 16 through 18 and, as the name implies, it only happens once every two years, so it's a big event. It's open to the public and Dr. Peter Moyle joins us to explain what will be happening. More information can be found at this website: http://scienceconf.deltacouncil.ca.gov/
