Invite you to the book launch of

IN YOUR EYES A SANDSTORM
Ways of Being a Palestinian

By Arthur Neslen

introduced by Professor Gilbert Achcar

Who are the Palestinians? In this compelling book of interviews, Arthur Neslen reaches beyond journalistic clichés to let a wide variety of Palestinians answer the question for themselves. Beginning in the present with Bisan and Abud, two traumatized children from Jenin’s refugee camp, the book’s narrative arcs backwards through the generations to come full circle with two elderly refugees from villages that the children were named after. Along the way, Neslen recounts a history of land, resistance, dispossession, exile and trauma.

Monday 23rd April 7.00 – 9.00pm

Room G50, SOAS, Thornhaugh Street, Russell Square, WC1H 0XG
