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

KJZZ partners with the Arizona Republic to bring you the Arizona Storytellers series. We record the live events and share them with you on the radio. In Phoenix, the storytellers sometimes share stories about our community or the life events that have shaped them in general. Megan Finnerty is the creator of the series.


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

Karina Bland is a columnist and reporter at the Arizona Republic.

Join us for our next night of live storytelling on Sept. 14, 2015, at the Phoenix Theatre.
