THIS IS NOT A BORDER: REPORTAGE & REFLECTION FROM THE PALFEST OF LITERATURE
Boston, MA I Brookline Booksmith
Eyewitness Palestine delegate & writer Shuchi Saraswat has put together an incredible reading which will be held at the bookstore Brookline Booksmith, Friday October 6th at 7pm. Please spread the word and bring your community with you!
The reading is in honor of the anthology ‘This Is Not a Border: Reportage & Reflection from the Palestine Festival of Literature.’ The anthology commemorates ten years of the Palestine Festival of Literature, and contains over 60 essays, poems and dispatches from international writers who have traveled with the festival.
Writers Teju Cole and Ru Freeman have both been part of PalFest and have graciously agreed to travel from out of state to join us. The event will also host Khury Petersen-Smith, Boston based post-doc fellow at Tufts University and the co-author of the 2015 Black Solidarity Statement with Palestine, which was signed by over 1,100 Black activists, artists, and scholars. And moderating will be Tom Hallock, Associate Publisher at The Beacon Press, a publishing house committed to “freedom of speech and thought; diversity, religious pluralism, and anti-racism; and respect for diversity in all areas of life.”
If you are an attending delegate, please do seek out Shuchi and say hello!
