Vijay Prashad: Demystifying Events in the Middle East & Palestine 

Wed., Oct. 7 2015
510-548-0542
Award-winning journalist & charismatic scholar VIJAY PRASHAD will speak about his book LETTERS TO PALESTINE: Writers Respond to War & Occupation – and he’ll offer an overview on ever-changing events in the Middle East. Prashad edited this book, tracing the “swelling American recognition of Palestinian suffering, struggle, and hope, in writing that is personal, lyrical, anguished, and inspiring.” Two of his 17 books were named “Books of the Year” by the Village Voice. Says Prashad, “What we do is to create a short-circuit between the heart and the head.”
