In summer 2009, Shane Bauer, Josh 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.

What were they doing in Iran? How did they survive such a lengthy imprisonment?

In A Sliver of Light: Three Americans Imprisoned in Iran, they finally tell their side of the story. They recount the deception that lured them into Iran in the first place and describe the psychological torment of interrogation and solitary confinement. They make surprising alliances with their fellow prisoners and even some of their captors, while their own bonds with each other are tested and deepened. Help and assistance came from the most unusual places and people. Book signing to follow.
