How can we make sense of the tragedy in Syria? Wendy Pearlman has conducted open-ended interviews with more than 400 displaced Syrians across the Middle East and Europe from 2012-2017. She has brought together these personal stories in the acclaimed new book, We Crossed a Bridge and It Trembled: Voices from Syria (HarperCollins 2017). Using exclusively Syrians' own words, the book is a mosaic of stories and reflections that seeks to express the human dimension of the Syrian uprising, war, and refugee experience. For more details>>
