Friday October 27th at 7pm – 172 Allen St NYC
Molly will be speaking with Wendy Pearlman, author of the new book We Crossed A Bridge and It Trembled: Voices From Syria Friday night at Bluestockings Bookstore.
In this special book event, Pearlman will be discussing her book with the Molly and the two will share stories about their respective work related to Syria and reflect on how art and writing can serve in solidarity with struggles for freedom and justice.
From 2012 to 2016, Wendy Pearlman interviewed over 300 Syrian refugees across the Middle East and Europe, collecting testimonials from ordinary people transformed by revolution, war, and displacement. Her new book WE CROSSED A BRIDGE AND IT TREMBLED: VOICES FROM SYRIA tells the story of Syria exclusively through these intimate, first-hand narratives. The book forms a testament not only to the power of storytelling, but also to the resilience of those who face darkness with courage, hope, and conviction.
