Ghada Karmi North America speaking tour--Fall 2009
The Palestine Freedom Project is pleased to announce the North America speaking tour of renowned commentator and author Ghada Karmi. A powerful and eloquent speaker, Karmi will be touring North America from September 24 - October 10, 2009, speaking on the Palestinian-Israeli Conflict. Her tour coincides with the release of a second edition of her memoir In Search of Fatima.
Born in Jerusalem, Karmi was forced to leave as a child in 1948 and grew up in Britain where she became a physician, academic, and writer. Karmi writes powerfully and honestly, reminding us that the only crime the Palestinians committed was to be born in Palestine. Very few disapora Palestinians have written memoirs as intimate as Karmi's frank account of her life: her childhood in Palestine, the flight to Britain after the catastrophe of 1948, and coming of age in the coffee-bars of Golders Green, the middle-class Jewish quarter in North London. Karmi also penned Married to Another Man: Israel's Dilemma in Palestine, in which she demonstrates with relentless lucidity how terribly exhausted the diplomatic and political pursuit of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has become.
