Dreaming of Freedom, Palestinian Youth Under Siege will take place Sunday, Oct. 27, 2-4 p.m. at Christ Presbyterian Church, 944 E Gorham St.
Meet Yousef Aljamal, a young writer who grew up in a refugee camp in Gaza and lived through the three devastating Israeli military assaults between 2008 and 2014. He will share his experiences and insights about the lives of youth there and elsewhere in Palestine, including tens of thousands imprisoned by Israel’s military regime in the West Bank since 1967.
A contributor to the anthology Gaza Writes Back: Short Stories from Young Writers in Gaza Palestine, Aljamal has recently translated into English the book Dreaming of Freedom: Palestinian Child Prisoners Speak.
Refreshments including baklawa will be served. Fair Trade Palestinian olive oil, olive oil soap and crafts will be for sale.
Free, but donations gratefully accepted to fund another Maia Project clean water filter for Rafah kids.
