The Authors@Google program was pleased to welcome CBS News correspondent Kimberly Dozier to Google’s NY office to discuss her book, “Breathing the Fire”.
Kimberly Dozier is a veteran journalist of print, radio and television news; on the local, national, and international level. She pursues stories that are important, not just those that are popular. She has been featured in numerous media outlets including CBS Primetime, People and Glamour magazines. Dozier has consistently immersed herself in the deepest of world events, choosing to live in the Middle East long before the region’s current unrest. Dozier chose to live there, anticipating the region’s important role in the unfolding of world events. Working for CBS News, Dozier was put on the streets of Baghdad with a military patrol. It was on this mission that Dozier suffered life-threatening injuries from a bomb, lost much of her crew, and began to trace the roots of her inner strength and assess her world.
In Breathing the Fire Dozier offers a personal memoir of tenacity as well as dedication and drama. Through her often painful and inspiring account, readers learn what wounded military personnel-along with their families and friends-endure on the long road to recovery. Dozier also recounts her rise to network broadcasting, shares insights into the culture of war-zone reporting, and describes the unique demands and perils of women covering dangerous events.
