Doreen Carvajal, a California native, is a Paris-based journalist and former reporter at The New York Times. She has covered topics ranging from Serbian war criminals to international investigations tracking the heirs of art looted in World War II.

Her memoir, "The Forgetting River," is about her search to recover her Catholic family's hidden Sephardic Jewish roots in a mystical white pueblo on Spain's southern frontier in Andalusia. It was a journey that began ultimately after her canceled goodbye party on September 11 in New York and ended in Segovia, Spain where she searched for the secret tombs of her ancestors investigated by the Inquisition for heresy.
