Women writers from Palestine

Survival writing...

Time has moved on since our last collection on Palestinian writers; the Palestinian flag was raised at UN headquarters for the first time, the media coverage of the conflict has died down and it might be easy to forget to pay attention to the literary offerings of the Palestinian people. Through writing, Palestinian writers have been able to show their resistance to Israeli occupation and brutality and tell their own stories and preserve what they can of their heritage. These themes can be seen in the stories recommended below.

So, without any further ado, keep scrolling to see the books that should be considered for your wishlist…
