Isha Sesay is doing her thang! The author and journalist who resigned from CNN to “pursue other projects” is out with a new book, titled ‘Beneath the Tamarind Tree.’
In 2014, Isha got the opportunity to cover the kidnapping of the 276 Chibok Schoolgirls by Boko Haram in Nigeria. Now in 2019, the founder of W.E. Can Lead (Women Everywhere Can Lead) is giving us all the scoop about the unfortunate incident.

Beneath the Tamarind Tree shares an intimate account of the night Boko Haram attacked the Chibok community, exclusive details about the abducted girls’ years in captivity, and their daring tales of escape.
Some fans have already got their hands on the new book. Isha Sesay yesterday took to Instagram to share a few images of her first book signing in Seattle (USA).
