READING: ALI ABUNIMAH

Lannan Writer in Residence Ali Abunimah reads at the Marfa Book Company on February, 22nd at 6 pm. 

Abunimah is the author of One Country: A Bold Proposal to End the Israeli-Palestinian Impasse (Haymarket) and editor of The Electronic Intifada, an excellent online newsite for articles pertinent to the Palestinian community and the situation in Israel.

Ali gave a great interview to Marfa Public Radio's Tom Michael a few weeks before his reading which I highly recommend.   In it he discusses his family's history in Palestine as well as his ideas about the inevitable integration of the communities that are presently living in what is known as Isreal. Additionally, Ali appeared on BBC World Service during his stay in Marfa to discuss a photo which he discovered, taken by an Israeli soldier, in which the soldier has a young Palestinian child in the cross-hairs of his rifle.
