Show 2…Bombs and Books in Beirut: Linda Sacco


I’m talking about squirrels in our chimney, stereotyping, turning 18 again with my youngest why I started homeschooling and more on language in America and how I’m having to find synonyms in order to make myself understood.

This week my guest is Linda Sacco who traveled with her husband to war torn Beirut, Lebanon in the 1970’s and decided it was safer to homeschool her children in their house in the hills than to send them to school where they could get caught on the street in crossfire or stranded by a curfew. They experienced mortar fire and shelling but Linda was able to continue her children’s education despite several evacuations.

I will also close the show with my scouse friend so click below and listen!
