From the librarians:
I’m writing to let you know about two One Book, Many Communities: Mornings in Jenin events happening here in Montreal. These events are part of in international reading campaign initiated by Librarians and Archivists with Palestine. At these One Book events we will use Susan Abulhawa’s book Mornings in Jenin to talk about the richness of Palestinian literature, and create a broader awareness and understanding of Palestinian history and the struggle for self-determination.
