Jan Risher

Bio

A newspaper columnist for a dozen years, Jan Risher went around the world to get from Mississippi to Louisiana — with stops in between ranging from the mountains of Slovakia, the streets of Paris, a tribal village in Burkina Faso to the hills of central Mexico. She's a traveler, a working mom, a writer and a wife who believes in the value of listening to and telling the stories of others, as well.
