Book Talk with Linda Dittmar

September 28, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm


BWC is excited to co-present a book event with IfNotNow, Jewish Voice for Peace, and the Alliance for Water Justice in Palestine. Please join us in person or on zoom and invite your friends to hear and engage with Linda Dittmar as she shares her powerful story of the early years of Israel’s statehood and the Palestinian Nakba.

Israeli-American writer and academic Linda Dittmar is the author of Tracing Homelands; Israel, Palestine, and the Claims of Belonging. Part history, part travelogue, and part memoir, it is a braided account of Israel’s early years of statehood and the Palestinian Nakba—the “catastrophe” of mass expulsion—remembered as an Israeli child growing into young adulthood and as an adult, now living in the U.S., who comes to see that history with new eyes. A recipient of an Artist Fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council, Linda’s writings have appeared in The Massachusetts Review, Jewish Currents, Harvard’s Divinity School’s Bulletin, Consequence, and Nowhere magazine.

Masks and rapid tests are recommended for in person attendance, and registration is required whether attendance is in person or via Zoom.

Register Here.
