Michael Chabon, Fida Jiryis, Rachel Kushner, Yehuda Shaul, and Ayelet Waldman, moderated by Daniel Sokatch

With the 50th anniversary of the Israeli occupation of the West Bank upon us, award-winning authors Ayelet Waldman and Michael Chabon invited an international roster of top-shelf writers to visit the Israeli-occupied territories on individual journeys of their own design. What followed were moving, heartbreaking, and infuriating stories from the people on the ground in the contested territories, stories that unearth the human cost of the conflict. Hear some of those writers in person. The book is a benefit for Breaking the Silence, an organization made of former Israeli soldiers.
