Product Detail:A True Story from Iraq
By Jeanette Winter

Alia Muhammad Bake is the librarian in Basra, Iraq. For fourteen years her library has been a meeting place for those who love books. Until now. Now war has come, and Alia fears that the library--- along with the thirty thousand books within it—will be destroyed forever.
In a war stricken country where civilians—especially women—have little power, this true story about a librarian’s struggle to save her community’s priceless collection of books reminds us all how, throughout the world, the love of literature and the respect for knowledge know no boundaries.

Honor book of the Simon Wiesenthal Center's and Museum of Tolerance 2006 “Once Upon a World” Book Award in the Young Reader category.
