Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- A Fargo native who spent 100 days in Iran's Evan Prison continues to share her story.

Roxana Saberi spoke about what she learned while behind bars to a crowd at the Fargo Public Library. She was falsely accused of spying.

Saberi was released in May 2009 and has since written a book about her experiences. She says people in North Dakota and Minnesota stood behind her through everything.

Saberi says, “how strong you can become when you find out other people are speaking out for you when you can speak out for yourself, and I found out that make North Dakotans and people in Minnesota were speaking out for me, holding rallies, tieing ribbons around trees, and these steps made me feel like I wasn't alone anymore.”
