Hi. I’m Laura Kasinof, an American journalist living in Berlin. My first book, Don’t Be Afraid of the Bullets: An Accidental War Correspondent in Yemen (Arcade), is about my time as the New York Times correspondent in Yemen during the Arab Spring. I was just 25 when I reported for the Times throughout 2011 and into 2012, during protests and conflict, from my home in Sanaa.
Currently, I’m writing about migration and refugees thanks to funding from the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.
