Global Book Club - Monday 26th April at 6pm

Join us to discuss Going Home A Walk Through Fifty Years of Occupation by Raja Shehadeh

In this book, Orwell Prize winning author Raja Shehadeh travels through Ramallah and records the changing face of the city. Walking along the streets he grew up in, he tells the stories of the people, the relationships, the houses, and the businesses that were and now are cornerstones of the city and his community. As he grapples with ageing and the failures of the resistance, Shehadeh notes the ways that the past still invades the present.
