Sarah Shourd - A Sliver of Light

Historic LoDo: Please Note: This event has been changed from Wednesday, April 9 to Thursday, April 10.

In summer 2009, Shane Bauer, Joshua Fattal, and Sarah Shourd were hiking in Iraqi Kurdistan when they unknowingly crossed into Iran and were captured by a border patrol. Accused of espionage, the three Americans ultimately found themselves in Tehran’s infamous Evin Prison, where they discovered that pooling their strength of will and relying on each other were the only ways they could survive. Sarah Shourd will discuss and sign A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran ($27.00 Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), the poignant memoir in which the hikers finally tell their side of the story.
