Description The Midtown Scholar Bookstore will welcome award-winning teacher at Northwestern University, Wendy Pearlman, to Harrisburg. She will discuss and sign copies of her new book, "We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices From Syria."

About the Book: Reminiscent of the work of Nobel Prize winner Svetlana Alexievich, it is an astonishing collection of intimate wartime testimonies and poetic fragments from a cross-section of Syrians whose lives have been transformed by revolution, war and flight.
Against the backdrop of the wave of demonstrations known as the Arab Spring, in 2011 hundreds of thousands of Syrians took to the streets demanding freedom, democracy and human rights. The government’s ferocious response, and the refusal of the demonstrators to back down, sparked a brutal civil war that over the past five years has escalated into the worst humanitarian catastrophe of our times.
