Karina Bland shares her story at the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix.

KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers project on the radio. Storytellers share stories about our community or about life events that shaped them at live events around the Valley.

Karina Bland has a son named Sawyer. And when he was very young, Karina would often receive calls from his school about his behavior. And always the question was: what has Sawyer done this time?

Bland is a columnist and reporter at the Arizona Republic.

Join us for our next night of live storytelling on Monday, Sept. 14 at the Phoenix Theatre.
