Author Elsa Marston's "In Line"

Author and poet, Elsa Marston Harik has lived in Bloomington, Indiana since the 1960s with her husband, the late professor Iliya Harik, and their three sons.  Thanks to trips to the Middle East connected with her husband's work and her own interests, she specializes in writing for young people about that region . She has produced much of her work in the hopes that it will help young Americans acquire a better understanding of the Middle East, past and present. Here, she  reads an excerpt from her story "In Line" from her book Santa Claus in Baghdad - And Other Stories about Teens in the Arab World published by Indiana University Press in 2008.
