NPR’s Weekend Edition Features Me in Bethlehem

NPR’s Weekend Edition features an interview with me in Bethlehem by Middle East correspondent Eric Westervelt. The website also includes a couple of interesting extras that weren’t on air: first, Westervelt and I tour Manger Square, the center of Bethlehem, discussing how it was to be there during the intifada; then I read a scene set in Manger Square from my new mystery novel The Collaborator of Bethlehem. Here’s the link:

Westervelt spent an entire day with me touring Bethlehem, discussing its history and the way it has changed–both in recent decades and, in particular, during the intifada. In the end, his piece highlighted some very important points about the town and my reasons for choosing to set my mystery novel there.
