Kate Raphael 

Presents her new novel, Murder Under the Bridge.

Rania is a young, Palestinian mother and the only female police detective in the northern West Bank. Chloe is a Jewish-American peace worker and documentarian who traveled to Palestine after being laid off from her Silicon Valley tech job. In Kate Raphael’s debut novel, Murder Under the Bridge: A Palestine Mystery, these two protagonists must overcome their cultural differences to solve a murder — a dangerous investigation that brings them inside refugee camps and the inner-workings of the sex-trafficking trade. Raphael is an Oakland-based feminist and queer activist and KPFA radio host who lived in Palestine for eighteen months documenting human rights violations against Palestinians with the International Women’s Peace Service. While there, she was imprisoned by Israeli authorities for more than a month due to her activist work. Raphael will be presenting her new novel at La Peña Cultural Center (3105 Shattuck Ave., Berkeley) on Thursday, November 19. The $5 event is a benefit for the Middle East Children’s Alliance.
