Watershed, Bristol, BS1 5TX
In Ramallah, Running + Out of it + Writing a Path through Palestine
With Bidisha, Selma Dabbagh and Guy Mannes-Abbott.
Why write about Palestine? What drives writers to explore the country in their work and what stays with them long after they have finished? Join us for a conversation between Bidisha, Selma Dabbagh and Guy Mannes-Abbott, writers who have each written highly acclaimed books set in Palestine. The discussion will explore their motivations to write on Palestine, the lasting impressions of their experiences and the artistic and journalistic challenges of writing with authenticity about a place you don’t know intimately.
