Wendy Pearlman, Author of "We Crossed a Bridge and it Trembled: Voices from Syria"
Northwestern University Professor Wendy Pearlman will present her acclaimed book, "We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria," based on interviews that she has conducted with more than 450 displaced Syrians across the globe since 2012. Called “essential reading” by the New York Times, and using exclusively Syrians’ own words, the book is a mosaic of stories and reflections that express the human dimension of the Syrian uprising, war, and refugee experience. Her talk will use the stories of ordinary people to chronicle the origins and evolution of the Syrian conflict, examine the status of the conflict today, and identify key issues for stages to come.
