Book Event: The Way to Spring

June 27, 2016 @ 6:30 am - 8:30 pm

way-to-springJoin us for a Politics and Prose discussion with Ben Ehrenreich to present his new book The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palestine.

Ben Ehrenreich first started reporting from the West Bank in 2011, on an assignment for Harper’s magazine.  He went back again for the New York Times the following year, which resulted in a powerful, much talked-about cover-story for the magazine.  Eventually he moved to Ramallah, and started writing what would become The Way To Spring.

In cities and small villages alike, a group of unforgettable characters shared their lives with Ehrenreich and made their own case for resistance and resilience in the face of life under occupation. Blending political and historical context with deeply human stories, The Way to the Spring makes clear that conditions on the ground are changing and getting worse, in an accelerating dynamic that should provoke the conscience of us all.

Co-sponsors: Institute for Policy Studies, Penguin Press
