Upcoming Event
Tuesday, January 24, 2017 at 7:00 pm

Ackerman served multiple tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, experiences that lent urgency and power to his debut novel of two Afghani brothers, Green on Blue. His eagerly awaited second novel draws on his two years of reporting from Syria and tells a powerful story of loyalty and exile set on the border between Syria and Turkey. The action begins in the fall of 2013, when Haris, an Iraqi-American, is frustrated in his efforts to cross into Syria to fight. He finds an ally in the wife of a former Syrian revolutionary; she wants to go back, but her husband does not. As ISIS steadily gains power, Haris must decide where he needs to be and what battles he should fight.
