One Book, Many Communities: Book Discussion of "Sharon and My Mother-in-Law" by Suad Amiry
Join Librarians and Archivists with Palestine for an exciting international reading campaign: One Book, Many Communities: Sharon and My Mother-in-Law, by Suad Amiry in Detroit on Wednesday, January 20, 2016 at 6-8pm at the Detroit Public Library, in the South Wing, 1st Floor, Room E.
The project draws inspiration from the “one book, one town” idea—wherein people in local communities come together to read and discuss a common book.
Suad Amiry writes with humor and insight about the realities of life under occupation. From falling in love across borders to dealing with deliberately inscrutable Israeli policies, Amiry’s “Ramallah diaries” will have you laughing and crying in the same breath. LAP’s “One Book, Many Communities” campaign is designed to introduce readers to the richness of Palestinian literature, and create a broader awareness and understanding of Palestinian history and the struggle for self-determination.
We encourage you to purchase a copy from your local bookstore, or use MEL.org to request it from a Michigan library.
