CHICAGO: Award-winning Palestinian author and poet Sheikha Helawy’s “They Fell Like Stars from the Sky & Other Stories” is a celebration of the victories, and an exploration of the misfortunes, of Palestinian Bedouin women and girls.  

Over the book’s 18 stories, Helawy, herself of Palestinian Bedouin descent, tells of coming-of-age events that shape the lives of young girls, of the patriarchal limitations placed on women, and of older women facing tragedies.
