I do things with words, mainly English and Arabic
I’m in Australia until about mid-July 2011 and with the Bradt Guide done and and dusted, I’m hoping to promote Gaza: Beneath the Bombs with some events. If any solidarity groups, bookshops, book groups or anyone else is up for hosting a reading or discussion based around Gaza BTB, or around the forthcoming Bradt Guide to Palestine or biography of Leila Khaled, please get in touch on mail [at] sarahirving.co.uk.

Both of our authors tonight have written on Gaza and both deplore the horror of it all. Join us a serious conversation about what to do next and why. Sarah’s book: Gaza: Beneath the Bombs explores the reality of life in Gaza. Raimond’s book Gaza: Law, Morality and Politics brings together a thought-provoking collection of essays by public intellectuals on the subject of conflict. A night to question the moral code we live by.
