Join us for the first meeting of our Palestinian Book Club, part of the book club network set up by artist Gentle/Radical. Our first gathering will be led by our writer in residence from Gaza Nayrouz Qarmout. 

We will be reading and discussing a short story entitled Our Milk from Nayrouz’s book The Sea Cloak and Other Stories. The session will also discuss Counterpoint, a poem written by Mahmoud Darwish to Edward Said. We look forward to gathering together to read, learn, and debate in a collective and inclusive environment.

Reading materials will be sent to participants once they RSVP.
