Bidisha is a human rights journalist whose travels to the West Bank resulted in the book Beyond the Wall: Writing a Path Through Palestine, giving voice to the many who are marginalized. Lieve Joris has traveled to Iraq, Syria, and other parts of the Middle East for her books, including The Gates of Damascus. And Edward Platt’s The City of Abraham is about the city of Hebron, where Israelis and Palestinians live side-by-side. In this session moderated by Reuters reporter Megha Rajagopalan, these authors will compare notes and discuss what it takes to travel to and write about places in turmoil.
