Alia Muhammad Baker's library in Basra, Iraq, has been a meeting place for those who love books for the past fourteen years.
Now war has come, and Alia fears that the library--along with the thirty thousand books within it--will be destroyed forever.
In this incredible true story of a war-stricken country where civilians seem powerless in the face of battle, this feminist and inspirational tale about a librarian's struggle to save her community's priceless collection of books reminds us how, throughout the world, the love of literature can unite us all.
