Olin Unferth Recalls Search for Revolution and Love

In a story in The Kansas City Star, Deb Olin Unferth, assistant professor of English, recounts going on road trip in the 1980s that became a journey to Central America to help sow the seeds of socialist revolution – and along the way she found love. The recollections are the basis for her book Revolution: The Year I Fell in Love and Went to Join the War, which includes her experiences in El Salvador and Nicaragua working in an orphanage, engaging with communist rebels and converting to Christianity.
