I’m Laura Kasinof, a writer and journalist whose work focuses on migration, religion, and life after war. I’m the author of Don’t Be Afraid of the Bullets: An Accidental War Correspondent in Yemen, the story of my time as the New York Times correspondent in Yemen during the Arab Spring.
More recently, I’ve been writing about refugee life in Berlin, the trade of domestic workers in the Middle East, and — bringing it back stateside — evangelicals who secretly go to Planned Parenthood. I still occasionally write about Yemen. I’ve also penned the occasional essay.
