Best-selling Afghan novel ‘The Kite Runner’ is adapted for Broadway

From PBS NewsHour.

It’s a tale that strikes at the heart of Afghan American identity, a generation of people who fled the Soviet Invasion of Afghanistan to the U.S. and started over, watching painfully as their former homeland is torn apart. "The Kite Runner," based on Khaled Husseini’s best-selling novel, opened as a play on Broadway last month. Jane Ferguson reports for our arts and culture series, "CANVAS."
